Maybe I should have mentioned that you have to add a new eventInfo area to the theme file in order to see the status of the events just like in vanilla vdr schedule menu ( [* t T V] currently running, timer offset, timer , and VPS)

eventInfoFont="Accidental Presidency;20" 
# same as eventDate and eventTime 

x1,y1 are the coordinates and w, h the width, resp. height of the eventInfo area. So you have to find a free place depending on your theme file. By the way, you can edit the yaepghd theme file while vdr is running. When you close yaepghd and reopen it, the theme file is also reloaded.

A part of this patch is originally from my yaepgsd (downgraded for 80 kb FF osd memory). This is why I  commented the ellipses out, as they would all have the same color anyway. In my sd theme I don't even have a helpbar. Therefore I can't say anything about this strange behavior.
