Ok, isaac was (of course) correct about themes.txt, so the gui size
issue is taken care of, but I'm pretty much stumped on the EPG issue.
Could you possibly give me a quick rundown of your setup so as to help
me figure out where my problem is? i.e. what myth version are you
running, on what linux distro, with what window manager? Do you have the
gatos drivers installed for your radeon?
