Video output

I've tried to set reasonable defaults for overscan compensation. But if it not correct for you it can be adjusted under Settings -> Display and UI settings

Hardware limitation on playing media:

H264 with profile > 4.2, H264 High 10 (10bit), VP6, VP8, VC1/WMV9. Movian tries to play those files anyway, but success varies to sound only, or blackscreen when reframes or resolution are high.
