Can you take a look at:


and let me know if your OSD looks like "softdevice_wrongoverlay1_software"
or "softdevice_wrongoverlay_software" ?

I think the problem lies in the code that alpha blends the OSD with the
video image.  Changing the HUE setting for me had no effect either.  I
notice the OSD becomes "strange" once any video is playing.  Until then
the OSD looks fine...
