Yes: try to set "start mythtv in a window" (or some of that kind in the mythtv 
setup) and adjust the window size to your needs (also in that setup). I'm not 
at home, so I don't know the correct place and name, but it's there ;-).

That works perfect for me, however the OSD does not use this (re)size, so 
maybe anybody else knowns, how to solve the OSD problem.
