I had the opposite problem. With the MythCentre theme my fonts were
too big so "Manage Recordings", for example, appeared as "Manage".

I fixed it by editing the menu xml files for that theme.  Can't
remember exactly where they were (somewhere in ~/.mythtv/ I think) and
not sure if it works for all themes but you might be lucky.

I never got DisplaySize to have any affect, maybe because I'm using a
PVR350 for output.
