    Maybe you have customised Windows' zoom mode?

    I am having the same problem. Sky channels use a teletext subtitle and it is way too big on the screen. I had a customized windows zoom applied and changed it back to normal. This helped a little bit but the subtitles are still too big. I am surprised more sky uk users haven't experienced this or is there a work around I have missed?

    @superforever, @leo808, @cundogg

    What OS are you using and what is your font settings in Windows? Also in which versions of MP have you experienced this problem?

    I changed Windows 7 fonts back to default 100% a bit better but I would prefer if I can adjust it myself.

    Hmm. I never experienced any issues in the past when using Windows 7 and font size set to 100%. Currently I'm using Windows 8.1 and MP 1.6 and have set the font size in Windows to "Larger". I think I'll have to do some more tests. Just to make sure, if you watch the same channel using a regular set top box or directly in TV without MP/computer the font size is of the "right" size?

    It is not possible to use 100% on a 60" TV can't see it at all, I have set it to 125% but just too large. Of course the size is right with the subtitle from TV directly.

    But I have a TV without antenna so have to use MP.

    Thanks for the link, if anything wrong how can I remove the patch? Will it affect future MP update?

    If enough good/success report (it will go to next MP version).

    You can easily revert to 1.8.0 Pre release :)

    When I tried to install it said

    Update current installation to 1.8.0 Pre
    Reinstall current installation to 1.8.0 Pre
    Fresh install

    NOTE: You cannot upgrade from an existing GIT build, those are meant for testing purposes only.
