My TV can handle both PAL and NTSC. Nevertheless, the OSD is resized and 
everything is displayed correctly when playing NTSC content.

I might be way off here..., but I assume that since all TV-standard 
values in VDR are hardcoded to PAL, it is safe to use those values to 
calculate the correct OSD size for NTSC material.

Have you already given the plugin a try?
