[mythtv] PATCH: Don't hilight the selection in an inactive list

I was thinking that the Watch Recordings screen could
change so that if the left column has focus, the set
of available actions would be different that when the
right column has focus (which could remain as-is).

When the left column has focus, the default action
should be to shift focus to the right column, as
pressing RIGHT does now.  Also, since no particular
episode is selected when the left column has focus, we
probably shouldn't display the episode name, subtitle,
description, preview frame/video in this case.

The main downside would be that you'd have to press
Enter-Enter to choose the first episode in a list of
shows, instead of just Enter.  But I don't think
that's a very bad thing...

I'll make the changes if others think it's a good
