This is something I'm planning to tackle if I ever get around to doing
my UI calibration setup screen. What I plan to do, rather than have the
user edit the gui size & offset boxes by putting numbers in, is have a
number of objects onscreen that can be moved around with the cursor keys
(or remote). These objects will designate the top left corner of the
screen, the bottom right, OSD & subtitle positions. The user then
simply moves them to the appropriate place on screen & stores them.
Ta-da - done (etc).
I think it'll be _miles_ easier & much less hassle than going into the
appearance setup screen, changing the size/offset, waiting for resizing
& redrawing, going back into the setup screen (etc).
Just my £0.02 worth ;-)
