The conventional OSD is always the width of the video.
This is a limitation of this OSD rendering method. In
the future there will be two additional OSD rendering
methods, OpenGL OSD and Composite Extension OSD. But
these require some work and probably won't be available
even in the next release of MythTV. These two additional
methods only work with nVidia drivers, though the
Composite Extension OSD should eventually work with
other video drivers.
