I don't have my MythTV box up right now but I ran into
this and,
as Isaac guessed, I seem to recall that the window
manager was at
fault. At first I just fired up KDE instead of gnome
and MythTV
started working. Then I figured out how to change the
manager gnome was using (that was kind of tricky as I
and that worked too. I eventually scrapped Redhat
entirely and
went with gentoo since I figued it was a better fit
for a dedicated
PVR machine.
