It looks like this is based on the X server. I see no reference to 
DirectFB in the README.txt or the Makefile.

The Matrox MGA450 is a very old graphics card. Also the computer is 11 
or 12 years old, featuring a 900 MHz Celeron and 256 MB RAM. DirectFB 
meets these requirements. I do not have plans to replace my Hauppauge 
Nova-T PCI 90002 tuner(s) with DVB-T2 either, so I do not even care 
about HDTV for now.

Thanks for the hint anyway! I could at least compare how the OSD is 
implemented there.

Best regards,
