I'm using a Shuttle-pc, with the onboard s-video savage out.  I have the 
same lack of overscanning problems and have posted a few times to the 
mythtv users list to find solutions.  However, it seems that 
functionality has not been added to the driver.  I agree that it makes 
watching very poor, but I'm hoping in the new release of the savage 
driver it will have support for overscanning.
