I remember you posting that, but I didn't really understand why that would
work, so I guess I figured you had misunderstood my question, and never
tried the patch. I'll try it now. Out of curiosity, does this problem seem
to be something limited to the radeon? or just 7500's? Or is it something to
do with redhat (I notice all the people whove complained about this have
been running rh8 as well). Is this something which is fixed by installing
the gatos drivers?

I replied a few weeks ago to the list on how to fix this.
And since you have the same video card I'm assuming my fix will work for

If you resize the epg background window to 100 taller than it is now,
the video will not cover the window in such a way that it must be in

I can't remember the exact line of code, but search the archive for
posts by me in the last month or so.
