I don't know if this problem belongs to mythtv or ivtv. Anyway, I can see the 
videos with great quality, but the mythtv menus (and kde, firefox... 
everything but videos is "too expanded". I mean, I can't see the borders of 
the image because they are out of the tv. I'm running X.org (suse 9.3) with 
PAL system and a widescreen tv (16:9):


Section "Monitor"
       Identifier  "PAL TV"
       HorizSync  30-68
       VertRefresh 50-120
       Mode "720x576"
         DotClock 42.6
         HTimings 720 760 832 944
         VTimings 576 577 580 602
         Flags    "-HSync" "-VSync"

Section "Screen"
        Identifier  "TV Screen"
        Device      "Hauppauge PVR350"
        Monitor     "PAL TV"
        DefaultDepth 24
        DefaultFbbpp 32
        Subsection "Display"
          Depth 24
          FbBpp 32
          Modes "720x576"

Section "ServerLayout"
  Identifier   "Layout[all]"
  InputDevice  "Keyboard[0]" "CoreKeyboard"
  InputDevice  "Mouse[1]" "CorePointer"
  Option       "Clone" "off"
  Option       "Xinerama" "off"
  Screen       "TV Screen"

Section "DRI"
    Group      "video"
    Mode       0660

Section "Device"
       Identifier  "Hauppauge PVR350"
       Driver      "ivtvdev"
       Option      "fbdev" "/dev/fb1"
       BusID "2:9:0"

In mythtv there are some controls, I though that they could solve this 
problem, but they seems to do nothing (I read the mythtv documentation...).

What's the solution?
