Are you sure you don't have 2 copies of the font file around and MythTV is
using the unmodified version?  MythTV does a 'hunt' for font files now, so
it may be finding an old copy somewhere under your themes directory.

For kicks, can you check what MythTV displays if you startup OpenOffice,
use the specified font, then startup MythTV, does it show the Greek characters
correct like OpenOffice or are they incorrect still?
