would be great if you did! The call sign / number spacing is

the patch fixed that right up.

Hi Per, 

I have
released a new version of the theme. See
http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Blue_Abstract_Theme. It has undergone many

I have also widened the channel name display in the program
listing screen. Not as wide as in your patch, because the channel names
in germany are not as long and I prefer to see more epg data. Maybe it
suits you. I will update the OSD screens in the next version to be
aligned with the current themed screens. 

Best regards
