[mythtv-users] Adjusting the recording frame on a PVR500?

All recordings made by my PVR500 are slightly mis-framed; there's a 
small black bar along the bottom, maybe about 10 pixels. I suspect that 
I'm missing the same amount of data from the top, as well. Is there any 
way to adjust the framing of recordings, either in the mythtv setup or 
with ivtv driver parameters?

The worst part is, for the past month and a half (since I first got Myth 
running), it hasn't bugged me -- every once in a while I'd notice it, 
and say to myself, "nah, it's just an optical illusion, because the 
border of the lcd is black and bevelled." Last night I actually walked 
up to the screen and looked at it closely, confirming that it's indeed 
part of the image. For the rest of the night, it bothered me immensely, 
and now I think I may have gone and ruined the mythtv experience for 
myself. :)
