Similar to the fonts in the picture linked at:

If so, http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/326414#326414 
.  (And, you might want to read through the rest of the thread.)  The 
best bet for a workaround is to remove/comment the font <filename> from 
osd.xml .

I haven't yet gotten a chance to look into the suggestion that it's 
related to the source video resolution:  
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/326717#326717 .  So 
far, I've been completely unable to reproduce the issue on my systems, 
so I haven't made much progress figuring it out.  I hope you have better 
luck.  :)
