Thanks for the suggestion - I have tried this.  It does make the gui
smaller, but its still chopped off all the way around.  What I get is a GUI
that's smaller than the sceensize and clipped around the edge (as though it
takes the previously visible GUI and scales it down).  I see the Fedora
desktop where I want the rest of my GUI.  Live TV still looks fine.

I haven't tried this yet - I was trying to use NVidias hardware overscan
instead.  I believe using MythTVs "overscan"  simply chops and scales and
causes interlacing issues - but its worth a try to see how well it works.
Thanks for the suggestion.
