Huh. Now that I see those config dialogs, I vaguely recall see them long ago. Vaguely.

As far as I can tell, my kaffeinerc file does not contain some of those settings. I see the following OSD settings:

OSD Duration=5
Osd Timer=false

I don's see any config settings for OSD font or color. Nothing in dvbrc either.

I'll see whether I can find the sources for the older versions. Whether they build is another story... Perhaps some old sources might contain those related config file settings and I can test whether they will still function.

No luck. I received a message box that only the xine engine can be used for DVB. FWIW, as my KDE3 and TDE systems use the same underlying OS, that means the same xine package too.
