I was too shy to submit a patch to the libmyth... but if you like and if
this can increase the probability to see this code accepted, I'll go to add
the keyboard interface to the MythRemoteLineEdit widget, and maybe to the
MythLineEdit, as you prefer. I think to something like pressing a key like
"@" (who will use this key in a title?) to bring up an input window allowing
you to easly enter text with the keyboard interface. The downside of this
will be the need for another key on the remote... or maybe we can use some
tricks like "press OK twice to bring the keyboard window" (who will use two
consecutive space in a title?).

You say, not limited to a-z ... what other letters do you know? :) ...
please explain better this concept.

Let me know.
