[mythtv-users] Underscan in playback and recording, driver issue?

Little background on the system:
   MythTV built from SVN
   ivtv driver version 0.7.0
   Hauppauge PVR-150 card
   1366x768 LCD TV using VGA input for computer, displays menus and WM

The problem is that recordings and live TV using the PVR-150 doesn't fill
the screen completely. The left edge for up to about 1/2" is all black and
doesn't stretch to fill the entire screen when in 16:9 stretch mode. This is
a bit annoying, and it isn't a playback issue, as the recorded mpegs
themselves show the black stripe on the left edge in the preview pane and
when played in a window. Some channels are worse than others, but when using
the card with BeyondTV in windows this has never been a problem, as it seems
like it auto-centers the picture if there is some sort of black space.

Has anyone seen this before or can offer a resolution? Right now it is the
only thing from letting me switch over to Myth completely.
