    Small Fonts Tv Out Mythtv

    Fonts just too small for certain parts in Myth like the TV Guide, or program information.

    I have another box setup for my dad and I fixed that problem before by adding
    Option "DPI" "100 x 100"
    in the monitor section of Xorg.conf, but no luck here.

    Video card is a Nvidia MX 440

    I had to switch to some legacy nvidia drivers that were in the repository because the card is so old. It fixed the crazy wavy lines the newer drivers had.

    two things:

    First:
    Checkout /var/log/Xorg.0.log to see what DPI it claims to be setting up.

    Second:
    Checkout "xpyinfo | grep dot" to see what comes up there.

    dj@dj-server:~$ cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep DPI
    (==) NVIDIA(0): DPI set to (100, 100)
    (WW) NVIDIA(0): Option "DPI" is not used
    dj@dj-server:~$ xdpyinfo | grep dots
    resolution: 100x100 dots per inch
    dj@dj-server:~$

    Still seems like they're kinda small, I guess I could try 150x150.
