Frame Guides on CVBS out?

Is there any way to get the camera to output the frame guides via the Composite/AV out?

I've gone though the whole menu and i can only get normal characters up on my steadicam monitor.. but no frame guides.

Neither guide frames, peaking, expanded focus, zebras, etc., are available over composite.

Not weird at all. Camera doesn't overscan.

The HVX does not write a full raster image, so it can overscan.
