    Is overscan ever NOT symmetrical along both axes? I would think that a
simple slider with percentages would be able to handle the majority of cases
where you want to adjust for overscan. In my own case, all I did was run the
math for 5% against my screen size. That was a number that I picked up from
the discussion here as the typical overcan amount.

    I've never had luck with the screen wizard.
