Ugh!  I stand corrected.  It does indeed no longer function as I once 
thought.  I spent some time verifying this before I responded.  In a prior 
release (I don't know which one), mythtv used to respond to the mouse (it 
wasn't visible, but you could click on menu items and they would be 
selected).  I was under the impression this was still the case and so was 
somewhat boldly speeking about what I had known, but that which isn't the 
current reality.  In any case, I apologize if I mislead anyone on the 
current state of things.  My Myth project has been in the works for some 
time now and isn't in use all the time yet.  In any case, I look forward to 
the mods you have Joshua and thanks for correcting me.
