Buried in the myth setup are options to change the X Y position of the
playback.  Try tweaking those.

If the playback is terrible, that's the OSS nv driver.  Use the nvidia
binary driver instead.  FC has prebuilt rpm's that track the kernel, I
think it's from livna.  Other distros will vary.

You still need to rule out if it's a recording or playback problem.  Try
recording a 15-60 sec clip and email me the .NUV file and I'll tell you.
