Assume the OSD aspect is 16:9 and the currently displayed video material
is 4:3. To properly map the subtitles on the 16:9 OSD you need to do
VideoAspect * OsdHeight to get the proper width, assuming that the full
height shall be used.

Since you're saying that the problem is related to the dxr3 plugin I guess
I won't see any error with my TT-S2 6400.
