I have xv controls unchecked (I am referring to the xv control in the 
mythfronend setup correct?) and still the  problem persist.
I know I have xv off because now the <F> key does not do anything, is this 
correct? The <G> key still works and still does the trick I describe above. 
Should the G key worked when xv controls are unchecked in the setup?

So most likely  the problem is related to xv but I am running out of things to 
do to change the behaviour :-(

Thanks for your help.
