Fixed the wrapping by replacing this popup with a MythPopupBox,
although I must say that I liked the look of the previous much
better. The focus issue seems to be an issue some other
places as well, i'll have a look at it later.

It was a flaw, as it printed it always, Fixed

The card should have been working with that warning message above,
please send the output of mythbackend, when you try to go into
LiveTV or start a recording.

I'll look at this one later, along with the focus issue.

I also added the "LEFT" & "RIGHT" keybindings to mythlistbox, to
give focus to the prev/next widget, and added a few translations.

There is also the annoying but harmless 'BUG: List...(New Channel)'
left to fix.

This patch probably requires a `make distclean`.

Off to some relaxing,
