Sorry, I disagree

The combination of the unfamiliar cursor-based
navigation and option-selection technique plus not
knowing which button is "in focus" makes configuration
attempts very difficult for me.

Other applications detect the screen native resolution
and scale or "scroll-bar" the screen menu accordingly
- why not mythtv?

This email comes from a place of deep frustration with
the number of problems I have experienced trying and
failing to configure this application.
