I'll look into it, it should be possible.  I noticed that some of the
backgrounds, especially the photographic ones appear bad in other
parts of Myth.

I dont really understand what you are talking about in the program
guide, so I will take a look at it this weekend in both visor and also
in Myxer.  It shouldn't be too hard to alter things like this,
especially since I've heard this complaint before.
