Hello,

I tried with as few plugins as possible to maintain a working setup:
softdevice
remote

And the problem persists. My usual plugins are the above plus
pilotskin, femon, epgsearch, weather

Here's my OSD settings from setup.conf
OSDHeight = 486
OSDLanguage = 0
OSDLeft = 54
OSDMessageTime = 1
OSDSkin = sttng
OSDTheme = cool
OSDTop = 45
OSDWidth = 624
softdevice.OSDalphablend = 1

I've tried a few different skins and that doesn't make any difference.
