To remove from the Media Library menu, you just need to update the
meny itself. Copy /usr/share/mythtv/library.xml to your frontend
user's ./mythtv directory, and then edit it to remove any entries you
do not want to see (if you want to remove entries from other menus,
edit the appropriate menu file).

MythTV will use a local user's copy of the theme config in preference
to the copy in /usr/share/mythtv/ allowing you to customise your menu
but still keep the original in case you need it.
