The font settings in MythTV's settings are not used /anywhere/ in
MythTV--with the exception of in the settings pages (which are due to be
thrown away and completely replaced, as will the font size settings
since they'll no longer be needed).
The theme determines fonts and font sizes. If you don't like the
theme's choice of fonts/sizes, edit the theme--or better, make your
own. Also, make sure you actually have installed the fonts *onto your
system* that your theme of choice uses--just because the fonts may be in
a theme directory does not mean they will be used.
