    Not really This is a few installations ago. I was trying to get 
MythTV to work with my TV out, and eventually got to a menu that 
wouldn't respond to mouse or keyboard very well. At that point I read 
something about the menus being designed to work with remotes, not mice 
or keyboards, so I figured I'd probably have to get a remote working 
before I could hope to get any further.
