Create a text layer, setlayer above everything else, create a timer for your message loop, use getmessage instead of wait on your port, check the timer and hide or remove the text layer when time is up

Re: how to display text on video screen?

As mentioned in your other thread (viewtopic.php?f=34&t=86086), you cannot customize the roVideoScreen. To do what you're wanting, you'll likely need to implement your own custom video player with roVideoPlayer instead.
