Don't forget teletext has its own location specification. There is no such 
thing as "I like that". In the teletekst message there is specific location 
information, if you just put the text anywhere it might work for the few 
shows you test in your country, but a lot of othere peoples shows would be 
mangled (some countries even use multiple lines in several colors at 
specific positions at the same time, mostly when they are trying to mimic 
the feel of US cc).

The only thing you must do is locate the text at the position it specifies 
in the color it specifies, the full screen is a 25x40 grid (where default 
teletext chars are double line height). It might be mythTV changed during 
the last 6 months and the mapping is off, which is a new bug and should be 
remedied, but there is only one correct placement usable for all.
