Thankyou for quoting the documentation at me...  If you look in  
keys.txt you'll see that it lists "/" as a synonym for "4" in the  
EPG.  And if you read my email again, you'll see that mythtv doesn't  
seem to do that.  Now, I'm willing to accept that this may be a  
keys.txt bug, but regardless of whether / is a synonym for 4 or not,  
I don't think it should ever do what I described - have callsigns in  
the EPG not match up with rows of programs.

Anyway, when I have some free time I'll have a look at what is really  
going on and try to file a real bug report.

Be well,

Will           :-}
