You just have to play with those numbers... you need to raise the
640x480 numbers and lower the offset numbers...

BTW, i wouldn't say

i would say:
...as with all 350's i have the feature that the screen is perfectly
sized to view tv...


You see, if you had something other that a 350, you would have to resize
the tv-out to make it show well whereas the gui would fit perfectly.

just my 2 cents
