You haven't applied patch to the vdr core. It's included in the package.

No. osdteletext is to view teletext pages on OSD, ttxtsubs is to show teletext subtitles. It's 
subtitles which are sent in teletext pages (of course you can see those with osdteletext too, but it 
looks ugly and can't include subtitles in recordings etc..)

And while we're at the topic, is it possible to have border colour for the text in ttxtsubs? When i 
select white as text color, i can't see anything when there's something white on video under text. 
Solution so far has been to use little transparent background, but it looks ugly, not like "normal 
text" should look like (white text with few pixels thick black border)
