I think we're going to need a little more detail on what you are doing.

But if these are powerful boxes you might do what LinuxMCE does, it
just uses the Xorg Composite extension to overlay a second OSD over
MythTV. But if all you need to do is change the MythTV video player
OSD, there are easier ways to go about it.
