My TV is nominally 1366x768.  However, it actually displays around 
1280x680 pixels, the rest is lost.  In the past, I've twiddled with the 
modelines, but my TV (a Sharp Aquos) is notoriously finicky and has all 
sorts of sync issues if the modeline isn't exact.  So I'm back to losing 
the outer bit of my images.

Mostly the Myth menus and configuration options are unreadable.
