How about looking into VDR/osd.h? ;-)

enum eTextAlignment { taCenter  = 0x00,
                       taLeft    = 0x01,
                       taRight   = 0x02,
                       taTop     = 0x04,
                       taBottom  = 0x08,
                       taDefault = taTop | taLeft

   void DrawText(int x, int y, const char *s, tColor ColorFg, tColor ColorBg, const cFont *Font, int Width = 0, int Height = 0, int Alignment = taDefault);
        ///< Draws the given string at coordinates (x, y) with the given foreground
        ///< and background color and font. If Width and Height are given, the text
        ///< will be drawn into a rectangle with the given size and the given
        ///< Alignment (default is top-left). If ColorBg is clrTransparent, no
        ///< background pixels will be drawn, which allows drawing "transparent" text.
