this might be slightly OT, but I thought it would be worth pointing out
if talking about future releases of the femon plugin. Would you like to
take a look at my quick hack which makes the femon OSD width adaptive
and consistent to the global OSD width (for HD displays):

As mentioned, maybe it's a hack, but it looks quite well on my FullHD
OSD (even if right now I'm only able to receive SD video yet). For vdr
>= 1.7.8 maybe the OSD width value can be obtained via the new API call
Klaus introduced, but I only did it for a patched vdr-1.7.7, but you get
the idea...

Cheers,
Lucian
