That scaling, you're talking about is not related to the new OSD system.
Scaling is part of the output device and at least xineliboutput can be
configured to not to scale.
I was talking about OSD only - independant of the stream-format.
In the example I wrote, anthra was configured with 1920x1080 - when I watch TV
from FF and hit the menue button, the screen will change to black font on
black background :)
As far as I understand a statement of Klaus, the OSD will be different
depending on the output device.
So I wrote about my wish: if the OSD systems already are different, it would be
nice to have different configurations too.
