Hello and thanks,
I want to display larger numbers on the TV from the propeller. I can now write all kinds of text to the tv, but I don't know how to scale it. I would also like to do other graphics like star bursts and stuff like that.
Can someone tell me how or point to where I can learn how to do this?
Thanks in advance.

Have a look at the demo programs for the TV.

Take a look at the graphics object that comes with the Propeller Tool. I believe it uses vector graphics text and that can be scaled. There's a graphics demo program included also with the Propeller Tool that shows how to use the routines.

As is true for many of the objects included with the Propeller Tool or in the Object Exchange, there are comments in the source code that often provide the documentation for the object and its use. Have a look through the source code.
