If you are using DVB then this is probably the tuning info. It gives
you info on signal strength, etc for the channel myth is trying to tune to.

I'm guessing you've tried Utils/Setup -> Setup -> TV Settings ->
Playback -> On-screen display (Next,next,next...9th Screen) and the font
settings on there. They look like the most likely candidates to me. In
fact after a quick test, that definitely changes the OSD font on my
setup. I'm using the MythCenter-wide theme if that matters, and I have
two choices of font : FreeMono.ttf and FreeSans.ttf
