I'm guessing this was actually the one that was doing it, but I could be

It sounds like you're pretty much back to the defaults.

The "use separate modes" setting is primarily for HDTV, where you'd rather 
have a progressive-scan mode for the UI, because its much more readable, then 
switch to 1920x1080 interlaced for full-resolution playback of 1080i HDTV 

"Use GUI Size" is often useful when your picture is quite a bit overscanned. 
You tweak out the UI to fit within the visible area of your display, then 
tell the video to run inside that same space. Running in a window is less 
useful for a dedicated Myth box (though some window manager combos won't 
honor the UI offsets, so running in a window and moving it w/your mouse 
becomes the only option). I think its most useful when you're running the 
frontend on a workstation.

Most of us have been there, no worries. :-)
