Hello, I just upgraded to a recent version of trunk ( 14618 ) on Fedora 
7 x86_64.  Previously, I was running trunk from about 1.5 months ago.  I 
am now seeing a few issues with autodiscovery.

1) I have two remote frontends.  Neither seem to be able to locate the 
mythbackend using the search functionality.  I can choose 'Do Not 
Connect To MythBackend' via the keyboard and continue on but since it 
can't locate the backend, it asks at every start.  The machine has a 
valid mysql.txt.

2) Full screen
I run a frontend on my desktop computer.  It runs windowed.  However, 
the chooser for autodiscovery doesn't seem to run windowed but rather 
always full screen.

3) No remote support.  I can't navigate the chooser to select 'Do Not 
Connect....' via my remote.  It forces me to get out a keyboard for the 
HTPC in the living room.  Is it supposed to support lirc or is it just 
assumed you would need to run this once and a keyboard would suffice?

Any thoughts on how to get around this?  I have read all I could find in 
the mailing list without a solution.

Thanks for any help.
