You mentioned Jarod's guide so did you note the section about setting 
overscan settings for nvidia cards by using the nvidia-settings tool?  
Just run nvidia-settings from a terminal window and you should get the 
appropriate options for settings over/underscan.

Does it work outside of mythtv?  Did you follow all the steps here:

Including the part about capturing content from the card to be sure it 
is working?

>How do I degub what's wrong with my mplayer?
Run the mplayer command-line in a terminal window substituting the %s 
for the filename of the video (be sure you are in your videos directory) 
and note any errors that appear.
