Yes, it does! Thanks for the gentle application of the clue stick.

Back when I was first setting things up, and was reminded of the various 
aspect ratio options supported by the TV, I had adjusted the display 
settings on Setup > Video > Appearance to X = 1270, Y = 710, X offset = 
5, and Y offset = 5. I never went back and fiddled with those numbers to 
get just the right ones. When I ran mythfrontend --geometry 
600x400+64+64 I saw that there was unused space to the right and top. 
That was when I remembered about the place to set those on the 
Appearance screens. I tried a number of settings and settled on 
1250x690+20+25. Those give me good appearance for HD in the TV's Full 
setting, and good appearance for SD in the TV's Zoom setting.
