I've tried a complete uninstall and compile from source but I  
couldn't get lirc enabled. So I tried a reinstall from ATrpms and I  
experienced the same thing. No plugins - except this time mythweb  
didn't work at all. I guess I'll try it all again tomorrow and see  
how it goes. Glad you're up and running.
