Are you displaying this on a normal NTSC TV? Bright reds take more bandwidth
and often times bleed into the rest of the picture when using composite or

Success!!  I now have green text for my channel number!  There
seems to be a bit of text smearing, but I think that is due to the
fact that the OSD program info display is blue and I have set
100% green for the channel number text (#00FF00).

I have noticed one problem so far: if I set 100% red for the
scroller text font color (#FF0000) the text smear across the
screen for the first half of the screen from right to left as it scrolls
across.  It looks like a bunch of thin vertical lines left behind as
the text passes by.  It disappears when the scroller background
disappears after the scroll text is done.

Do you have any suggestions of what and how to test your mod?
The green channel number was the only thing I was really looking
to try, so I don't think I'm giving the code much of a workout.

Thanks again!
