...it seems like more than anything else you have a mouse problem.

What you are asking about is fairly mundane for either Freevo or
MythTV. Mouse support seems to be lacking. That's probably a Linux
problem and has nothing to do Freevo in particular.

Without knowing the mouse in question, it's hard to say.
