Grey OSD's when using XvMC.  Color OSD any other time.  I've gotten 
color OSD's on GF4MX440, GF5200, and GF7800GTX.

The 6000+ series does not support overlays, which are used with the 
Chromakey OSD hack to get color OSD with XvMC, but really, I recommend 
just getting sufficient processor to allow software decoding without 
XvMC assist.  If you do, you'll get real color OSD's.
