Thank you for responding.

I had thought that, when it came to playing AVI files, that MythTV 
called mplayer. In the settings it has mplayer listed as my video 
playing software.

In any case, changing prog to say mythtv instead of mplayer has not 
enabled the correct functionality.

I see. However, it's not the method I would like to be using. Partly 
because I have not yet been able to enable channel listings to show 
information about other channels (hopefully I will solve that with xmltv).

But also, where I am in Japan, I only have 10 channels. Surfing them by 
looking at listings before actually changing the channel just doesn't 
add enough value with so few options to choose from.

So my next question is: how to I get browse mode to default to being 
off? On the web site I can see that the "O" key turns browse mode on, 
but pressing it again doesn't seem to get it off. And ultimately I'll 
want it to stay that way.
