That's to be expected. You'll need to setup Myth to scale  the GUI
such that it fits on your particular TV, this is take into account how
much you TV overscans the image. The amount of overscan varies from TV
to TV, and depending on how well alligned the gun is on your
particular 'set may not be equal top/bottom left/right. It's always
going to a manual tuning exercise to get it looking just right your
own 'set.

Odd, not sure about this one. Personally the OSD looks fine on my
system, maybe its to do with the font you're using? Hopefully somebody
else can try and explain this...
