#1999: 'Info' button brings up menus for editing
 Reporter:  anonymous  |       Owner:  ijr
     Type:  patch      |      Status:  new
 Priority:  minor      |   Milestone:     
Component:  mythtv     |     Version:     
 Severity:  medium     |  
 A general gripe about the handling of the 'info' button - too many lines
 which state:

    else if (action == "INFO")

 I find this inconsistent with what I'd expect - 'INFO' should provide
 information  (as 'DETAILS' currently does). In almost all cases the 'MENU'
 button isn't doing much useful (eg skipping back to the root) or is
 performing exactly the same function as the 'INFO' button.

 This patch creates a new 'PROGINFO' button (named from the dialog - I'd
 probably have named it to reflect its editing function as shown above, but
 this is stated in the description). 'PROGINFO' defaults to 'I' and carries
 out the function of 'INFO' in settings where, as above, 'INFO' actually
 sets up an edit.

 The patch maps the 'INFO' button to behave like 'DETAILS' - in fact the
 two become synonymous but I have not removed 'DETAILS' to avoid breakage.

 As the patch defaults 'PROGINFO' to 'I' this will not change the default
 behaviour of mythtv but allows people to select a setup like mine which
 was not previously possible.
