[mythtv-users] Clean Shutdown from Frontend??

     Yes I am using Mythtv as the user and it is not currently allowed to 
execute shutdown from the command line, however the system still shuts down, 
it just doesnt power off.     Funnily enough I have noticed since posting 
that the mythtv user on my system (FC5) can execute "poweroff" and that 
works nicely from the command line, but it doesnt correspond to the "exit 
and shutdown" from Myth.

    The remote is a special one that came with a settop box I use for my 
front end - Stino sbox 7500.    Not sure if you can get them elsewhere but 
they certainly save any messing about with lirc.  (however you have less 
control over behaviour as a result)

Perhaps the user issuing the shutdown command doesn't have the proper
priveledges.  Are you using the mythtv user?
What kind of remote do you have?  I'm interested in the no lirc option
you mentioned.
