The select key (usually enter) should swap between the top-left and 
bottom-right corners.  Depending on the overscan, you may not see one 
corner or another without moving it to the center of the screen.  Older 
versions of MythTV (prior to 0.27) did not function properly if you 
tried to use the wizard when you were already using a custom geometry.  
0.27 starts it in a new application and forces an unconfigured geometry 
to bypass this issue.

Since you've already discovered and configured the geometry settings, 
those are the end product of the screen setup wizard.  The wizard is 
just there to get you close to the desired setting, after which you can 
fine tune.
