Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: mythtv

I have Gutsy with the latest updates at this date, on x86_64.

It is connected to an HDTV using DVI/HDMI and is running at 1920x1080.

I am currently using an NVIDIA card using the Ubuntu nvidia-glx. The
problem existed as well when using an Intel GPU in the same machine (2.0
and 2.1.1 drivers).

The display is set hard to 100dpi in xorg.

All the normal theme stuff (menus, EPG, etc...) is displaying great.

BUT -- All the OSD, when watching TV, has fonts rendered badly, with
weird aspect ratios and overlaps. This is for the OSD menu, the program
information, the volume setting, position, etc...

I tried many different OSD themes with the same results.

Fonts are rendered properly when 4:3 "zoom" is selected.

Any info/dumps/logs/confs can be provided quickly upon request.
