It would almost seem like it is Gentoo related. I also
use Gentoo and have only had the defaultOSD showing. I
just downloaded the latest CVS version and I get this:

Couldn't find osdtheme: defaultosd

Or if I set it to use blue:

Couldn't find osdtheme: blue at

I also just noticed that I get this error when doing
make install:

make[1]: Entering directory '/root/CVS/MC/themes'
cp -f -pR  "blue" "/usr/local/share/mythtv/themes"
strip "/usr/local/share/mythtv/themes/"
strip: /usr/local/share/mythtv/themes: Is a directory
make[1]: *** [install_themes] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving Directory `/root/CVS/MC/themes'

I guess this is the reason it can't find the themes,
but what is causing the error?
