Default Nvidia tv overscan mx400 problem

Video card: Nvidia GF2 mx400
Distro: Knoppmyth R5A26

I'm trying to get my HTPC work but seems like I can't figure out how to setup tv overscan. I have tried editing XF86Config-4 but tv overscan option seems to have no effect. I also tried to edit .nvidia-settings-rc but when I try to run command
Code:
nvidia-settings load-config-only
I get following error:
Code:
Error: error querying valid values for attribute 'TVOverScan' on mythtv:0.0 specified on line 34 of configuration file 
'/home/mythtv/.nvidia-settings-rc' (attribute not avaible)

In the past tvout was provided using a external tvout chip from companies brooktree/conexant/philips. Nowadays GPUs contain a integrated tvout encoder. The geforce2mx uses an external tvout chip and for that chip the drivers don't support overscanning.

Do you mean that I will not be able to overscan my TV no matter what I do?

Per the NVIDIA driver README:
Overscan is currently only available on GeForce4 or newer GPUs with either NVIDIA or Conexant TV encoders.

Hoxzer, you need to purchase a newer card to use overscan.

Thanks,
Lonni
