[mythtv-users] Finishing my Myth Configuration

I've been running MythTV 0.18 for about a week now and am extremely
pleased with it. This is my first time using it, and I successfully got
everything running on my first try (with a few restarts). I have a few
niggling details I want to nail down before I consider this project
ready for primetime.
My box is running Myth .18 frontend and backend. It's a FC3 box with a
single Hauppauge 250 tuner card, an Nvidia 5200 video card (s-video out)
and an Asus NF2 motherboard - using the onboard soundcard. I am using a
irman with a Radioshack 8 in 1 remote. I used Jarods guide and the
mailing list for instructions on how to get everything running.
1. The down and CH- buttons on my remote are not working - all other
buttons work great. I set up the remote using irrecord and the lircrc
file from Jarods site. Do I need to rerun irrecord again? I played
around with IRW and confirmed that those keys are not responding. What
steps do I need to take to get those two buttons working?
2. Mythbackend isn't autostarting. I've been simply lauching it from
the console with a "mythbackend &" command, but I'd like to get it
3. Whenever I reboot, I loose /dev/video0 and am forced to run "modprobe
ivtv" to reload my tuner device. Is this the correct behaviour? Where
do I set this to run automatically?
4. I have my Mythtv box set to autologin. However, under FC3 for some
reason the default X session is "failsafe". How do I get it to use KDE?
Would changing /etc/sysconfig/desktop from desktop=gnome to desktop=kde
Thanks for any help getting these last remaining issues sorted out.
