If you're running XvMC, you will always get a gray OSD unless you've  
got an nVidia 4x or 5x series card and use the hack for color  
overlays. Hard to say for sure since you don't list your video  
display card with your machine specs. Also, the OSD theme is a  
separate selection from the frontend theme. They don't change  
together. you select the OSD theme with in the TV Playback settings,  
not appearance settings.
