Thanks for the info.  I didn't realize that the default setting in
mythfrontend/TV playback is now to use CC-708 captions and it appears that
the current CC-608 now use a less visible grey border rather than a black
one.  I'm back to CC-608 grey borders now, which is acceptable until your
patch gets pushed through to atrpms.

I guess my only option is to force CC-608 captions if I want them to have
the borders.

Is it even possible to override the CC-708 style settings to add a border to
those captions?  Unfortunately, CC-708 isn't 100% functional in my broadcast
area right now; but it may come in the future.
