Let me ask this a different way - having two different frontends 
(installed fonts are the same on both), the OSD displays great on one 
but not on the other.  When I bring up the menu or the channel 
infomation on one the channel number and display are almost unreadable 
the other displays the channel number and show information great.  Could 
someone point me in a direction to start tracking this down?
