My question is, assuming I use xorg.conf to use a resolution that
matches one in my CRT, but then I adjust the x and y gui sizes (and
have my tv use those sizes) to compensate for overscan, is it then
scaling the video to a non-native resolution that the TV needs to
adjust?  How can I set to a native resolution and take into account
the overscan without having both myth and the tv rescale?
