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 ;-)
