There's only so much information you can fit on a 640x480 screen such 
that it's readable from 10 feet away.  While MythTV allows you to use it 
at a minimum of 640x480, you should really use at least 800x600.

Just before 0.20 was released, Isaac did some cleanup of the setup pages 
to make them fit better in response to Trac ticket #2220 ( 
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/commits/219277#219277 ), so 
it's unlikely to get any better based on another bug report.  If it's 
really a problem for you, I highly recommend you find a way to patch it 
to make it better.
