The OSD/EPG issue is fixable. Look for Overscan/Underscan percentage and
displacement in Setup->TV Settings->Playback
I get the best results without window manager (or with ratpoison which
runs everything full screen) and adjusting the GUI size and the above
Overscan settings within myth. I also uncheck "run frontend in a window"
and disable all other applications, clocks, desktop managers etc.
