You can specify different sizes for video and the UI. I've never had to use 
these before because I don't have a problem with overscan, but you should look 
at using this feature.

With mythui we are dropping the advice to leave a 5-10% margin for overscan, 
it's too hit and miss, many TVs and monitors behave themselves and don't 
overscan, we've provided settings to compensate for those that do. In the 
mean-time as Robert said leaving that margin clear is a significant waste of 
screen real-estate and really limits the design possibilities. Terra would be 
impossible with that constraint because one of the core motifs are the lists 
which extend right to the edge of the screen.
