I had cleared all the positioning and overscan setting in Myth.

I actually went with option 3 and used the picture adjustments on
the TV to recenter the image properly.

The strange thing now is that already video playback is OK the
bottom and right of the menus seems to be chopped off. I have
both the GUI and the default playback size set for 720x576 at
the moment.

The other wierd thing is that the OSD text doesn't look right
at all. It was fine with the S-Video corruption but now looks
like is being subject to some horrid scaling that is causing
bits of it to be lost or something.
