[mythtv-users] Controlling the overscan on a PVR350

I am using a PVR350 and output X to the tv as well using the ivtvdev X 
driver. I would like to reduce the amount of overscan that X window is using 
itself. I know how to set overscan amount inside myth but no values there 
help me with the issues of excessive overscan, i.e. some stuff is hanging 
off the left/right side of the screen. In all I am loosing way too many 
pixels for overscan, more than 50 horizontally...

In the XF86Config-4 file the X-Screen size is set to 720x480, but I see no 
setting for the overscan amount.

Is this an issue for the IVTV folks perhaps? Any help is appreciated.
