I would put your statistic closer to 99.9%, since the caption at the
very end of the program (telling you that captioning was brought to
you by Ford/Toyota/whomever) is often yellow.  However, I have never
seen myth draw a non-white 608 caption, even after this fix.  By
adding extra logging, it appears that the input to the min/max
truncation is always 0.  This is with HDHR OTA recordings.  I'm
wondering whether the color is being dropped by the HDHR, the myth
recorder, or the frontend player.  Have you observed a non-white 608
caption with the fixed code?
