[mythtv-users] PAL tv output PVR350; X display screen size is to small

I'm using a freshly installed MythTV on Gentoo Linux, running kernel 2.6.14 
with ivtv 0.4.0-r2. I'm using a Hauppauge 350. Watching live tv and 
recordings is no problem through the "tv-out" of the PVR350.

However, when I display "mythfrontend" on the X-display (which is directed 
through the tv-out to my tv) or when I display the "electronic program 
guide" while watching live-tv, the screen size is a little bit wrong. The 
actual displayed screen is smaller than what X thinks so I lose a couple of 
pixels on the "sides". Enough pixles though so that the EPG and the menus 
from mythfrontend become unusuable.

Any hints on how to solve this? Thanks in advance!

This is a part of my xorg.conf and modules ivtv.
