That's the key - the overscan slider is under TV-O.  I'm guessing that
means S-Video, component, or composite, but clearly not DVI or VGA.  I
have no idea where HDMI fits into all of this, but I'd guess that it's
in the latter category, not the former.  I doubt there is any sort of
overscan adjustment for HDMI.
