I just tried this program out for the first time two days ago and it took me a 
minute or two to figure out the right syntax to make it actually display my 
message and not the token, but it worked great when I finally figured it out.  
The scroller looks nice...very smooth.  Here's an example of how to use it.  
I'm using the G.A.N.T. theme by the way:

mythtvosd --template=scroller --scroll_text="Testing Testing 1 2 3"

Give it a shot, I don't see why that wouldn't work for you as well.
