For the past, oh 4 months.  Maybe it's just the blue theme, and yes I'm 
100% sure I'm using XvMC.  If I remember right, the limitation was two
colors.  My OSD is either white and blue or yellow and blue, but I'll
have to check.  I've disabled it for the last month to stop the frontend
crashing when I seek in HD streams.  (The other option was to hit esc
before the OSD tried to fade out, as that appears to be what causes the
video buffers in the nvidia cards to get filled and not release for more
frames to be drawn.
