I think if the actual cDvbHdFfDevice::CanScaleVideo implementation would
have really calculated something, it should have only converted
internally to whatever needed (1/1000 in this case), and back to Osd
pixel dimensions before returning the value. Since it doesn't (as it
just returns the input rectangle, possibly because the device "is" able
to handle any size within the limits, maybe nothing should be changed.
Or maybe checking against the limits could be done, changed the size to
a reasonable default (like Null for full size) and log an error if the
input size wasn't within the Osd limits.
Udo's variant looks well, but for all this maybe Andreas Regel should
also be consulted. Btw, I sent him a PM on vdr-portal.de, he did not
react so far.
