I think you're a little confused about the terminology. OSD refers to
the style of the display that happens while video is playing, i.e.:
the progress bar that pops up when you press Pause or the channel
up/down buttons in browse mode.
The Guide's appearance is part of the main theme used by the rest of
the frontend. This is set in Settings->Appearance.

You must be using a PVR-350. That's the only way the guide works when
your TV is connected to the output of a 350 (at least in current
stable versions; this may have changed in SVN, I'm not sure). The
reason is that the 350 can't efficiently display a small, PiP-style
image in the upper-right corner of the EPG the way other video cards
can, so the developers decided that showing it full-screen
translucent was the best compromise.
Later versions of the ivtv driver for the 350 include a much improved
framebuffer driver that should be able to handle the PiP-style
preview, but I don't know if Myth takes advantage of this yet.
