   I am having similar issues. Although I think they are just limited to
xine. Perhaps not, I just haven't noticed them in MythTV yet.

   I have a newly installed AppleTV hooked up to a newly acquired LCD TV.
It's 720p but MythTV appears to be running at 1080. I'm not running with
any xorg.conf file at all and I don't see in the Xorg log what resolutions
are being detected (or used). It's the frontend log that indicates that 
the panel is running at 1920x1080.

   I'm using HDMI. My captions and my OSD end up off the screen. The captions
were a quick fix but I haven't really looked into the OSD yet.
