Sometimes, but not in the case of Kaffeine because Kaffeine is not a stock package. Users must build and install Kaffeine on their own. There are no patches with Kaffeine. Just the original upstream source tarball. Therefore the gray OSD and cyan text likely is the original.

I'd like to troubleshoot further before filing a report. :)

Same machine, same card, same settings, but different OSD colors. Weird.

I'll try again and this time delete the config files and build from scratch.

I'm glad you agree. :) Fortunately my TV uses the same channel information size all the time. I hope the Kaffeine patch is straightforward. I have been trying my hand at uploading really simple patches. This one likely is over my head still. :) But if you know what needs to be done and provide the information I can spend my time trying. ;)
