I have a 1:1 pixel mapping LCD TV, and found that the problems with
doing this are often more annoying than just dealing with the extra
pixels.  Myth's overscan tends to overcompensate the OSD (making a
visible, blank "bleed through" space between the OSD and the screen's
edge), AND throws off the placement of nav highlights in MythDVD.
Turning off the overscan puts the OSD flush against the edge and makes
the dvd navigation look perfect, so I turned it off.
