The focus indicator is dependent on the qt theme you are using, which is why 
mythtv colors the widgets to the highlight color when they have focus.  Try 
using a different Qt theme.  Also may help to try to spell my name right in 
the future.

That's not going to happen.  I'm not going to force someone to open up a web 
browser somewhere just to change a setting or two.
