I'm pretty sure all HDTVs are this way. HDMI will give you overscan
and VGA won't. It's nothing to ditch HDMI for though, just adjust the
mythtv GUI size and positioning until it fits properly on your set. It
will take some time, but I'm pretty sure that's what it's there for.

Personally I think HDMI looks crisper than VGA, but to each their own.
