This is likely due to the overscan of the signal the PVR-350 feeds
your TV with. I don't think this can be countered at the moment via
the PVR - your TV may have adjustments, but in my experience, moving
the icons was enough. I makes it almost impossible to try to use as a
regular workstation obviously, but the actual LiveTV and Recordings
had no issues. You may also need to run the frontend in a window and
move/resize it to fit within the bounds of the viewable screen on the
TV to get the best experience.
