[mythtv-users] Buttons not working

First, my setup:
Fedora Core 3 (64-bit) running on an AMD Opteron w/ an HD-3000 card and
Hauppauge WinTV PVR-250. All latest Fedora updates installed. Running
a custom built 184.108.40.206 kernel to ensure the HD-3000 DVB drivers are
included. Running mythtv-0.18.1 built from sources & lirc-0.7.1 using
the Hauppauge I2C config. My configure line for mythtv looks like this:
./configure --enable-audio-alsa --disable-audio-oss -disable-audio-arts
--disable-audio-jack --enable-dvb --enable-lirc --disable-joystick-menu
--enable-ivtv -dvb-path=/usr/src/linux-220.127.116.11/include --disable-firewire
When I first started building up this machine most everything seemed to
be working fairly well. Unfortunately I suffered a drive failure which
resulted in my re-installing everything...
I have both tuner cards working properly on their own. I can load the
DVB drivers and use utilities like azap with the HD-3000. I can also use
the lirc irw utility and get responses to button presses on the
When I run mythtv-setup and it displays the question asking if I want to
erase my device config the yes/no buttons don't behave properly. I can
change the focus using the arrows on my keyboard but if I hit enter on
either one nothing really happens. The focus disappears but that's
about it. More pressing on the arrow keys shifts the focus again. The
only way I can get past the first question is to hit the Escape key.
The same thing happens with the second question asking if the channel
data should be erased - nothing but the Escape key actually does
anything. From that point on navigation through the setup utility works
as expected with the keyboard. The remote control doesn't do anything
When I run mythfrontend I run into similar problems. The remote control
doesn't work but most/all navigation appears to work properly. At the
main menu when I hit Escape I'm prompted with another question if I want
to exit mythtv. Just like with mythtv-setup I can change the focus and
hit Enter multiple times but nothing happens. Hitting Escape this time
dumps me back to the main menu. The only way I've found to shut down
mythfrontend is to kill the process...
I don't see any error output from mythtv-setup or mythfrontend that
would indicate any problems with lirc or anything else.
Anybody have any ideas why I'm having so much trouble with buttons (both
the yes/no messages in myth and the remote not working)? Any help would
be greatly appreciated!
