Thanks. I'll give that a go. But before I can do that...

When I posted last night I subsequently rebooted my machine and when 
mythfrontend came back up the UI was totally shot - only 1 menu item 
displaying at a time, strange box outlines everywhere etc. Other themes 
still worked fine so I obviously hadn't installed your theme correctly. I 
had already installled MythTVMediaCenter from a .rpm and then I just 
untarred your tar file into the /usr/share/themes/MythTVMediaCenter 
directory. Was that wrong? perhaps I should have uninstalled the .rpm 1st? 
What is the correct procedure for installing this?
