Robert, I downloaded version 1.8 a few days ago, and I'm very impressed
with how polished it is. Thanks.

Regarding the
missing background images: I use my own (imho better structured) menu
(which you can activate in the appearance settings, it called
blue-abstract-menu). There I don't use the media gallery. I'll add the
background to it in the next version. 

I'll add some color to the
upcoming recording text. 

Unfortunately there is no option to change
the scrolling speed. I'll think about disabling it. You can still
disable the scrolling yourself in the xml file. 

Regarding the top left
OSD element, I wonder if its a theme issue or another one. These are
multiple windows like osd_message or osd_input. There area is defined
like this: <area>0,0,1280,720</area>. So maybe the OSD part in MythTV
does not scale it correctly. I'll look into that. 

Best regards

Robert S
