[mythtv] small mythweather request

The fonts in MythWeather should scale depending on the size of GUI. Can you 
send me a screenshot of the problem?  How much smaller are then in comparison 
to the rest of the screen?

Otherwise, perhaps I'm confused on what you did exactly. You have changed the 
resolution in X from 1280x1024 to 640x480, but your GUI size in MythTV was 
and is still set at 640x480?

MythWeather has several different font sizes, some of which don't correlate 
to any of the font sizes in the settings database. Not to say that this isn't 
possible, it just isn't the case right now.
