MythTV Users,

According to the various web pages related to MythTV I've looked at, 
"Browse Mode" is the default behavior for changing channels when 
watching live TV. That is, pressing the channel up or down won't go to 
the next channel, but instead show a description of what's on that 
channel, and then one has to hit "Enter" or "Ok" or whatever to actually 
go to that channel.

What I ideally want is for the up and down arrows to do that, but for 
the Ch+ and Ch- buttons to just change the channels. If I can't have 
that, then I'd rather just have the channels change, and browse mode be 
off entirely.

Some web pages say that to turn browse mode off, one presses "Esc" or 
"o". But this has had no effect on my system.

And in any case, even if browse mode could be turned off in this 
fashion, I don't want to have to do it every time I turn on the TV.

How do I make the default behavior for my MythTV to be off?

(I'm using MythTV 0.20)

Thank you for any information or advice.
