It's definitely not the cable. I have had it hooked up with two
different cables and I get the same results. Just to be safe I also
hooked up a DVD player using the same cable. Same exact model of DVD
player that's already on my home theater. So I was able to switch back
and forth between the two inputs and could see no difference. 

Here's a couple pictures connected to the FX5200. 
1) Using VGA cable connected to projector:

2) Using SVideo connected to projector:

So, am I missing settings somewhere or do I possibly have a bad card?
maybe I should contact support?

Also thanks for the pointer to Jarod's site. Completely missed that
section. I haven't tested to see if the overscan settings stick on next
login.

Thanks,
James
