I'm writing this from within TDE. The DVB OSD color problem is not related to the Nvidia drivers.

I am wondering, however. The hard-coded rule/line is supposed to be magenta, which displays correctly in KDE3. In TDE rule/line is yellow. The font color is supposed to be cyan/bluish, which displays correctly in KDE3. In TDE the color is red.

Is there something in the TDE code function that is getting the colors confused or shifted? The color values in the source code uses RGB values (255,255,255).
From what I see in KDE3 and what I think I understand in the source code, I should see a grayish box, with cyan text (0,255,255) and a magenta rule (176,0,176). In TDE I see a green box (0,176,0), with red text (255,0,0), and a yellow rule (255,255,0).

Only this DVB OSD is affected. I have seen no other color issues anywhere else.

I'll file the bug report but I'm throwing these ideas out for conversation.
