I am running mythtv from SVN trunk and I have the following issues I am
trying to troubleshoot.

1. I can't add new file types.  When I go into the screen where file
types are defined I select the option to create a new extension, I add

When I come back in the new file type is gone.  BTW: should .mkv be in

3. The fonts in the weather screen for 6 day forecast (or anything with
the 6 panels) are messed up.  This is true regardless of what theme I

4. Scanning through channels to see what is on, isn't really usable --
The OSD screen ranges from sort of quick to downright SLOW to display a
new channels information.  I haven't changed channels, just trying to
view info on what's on the different screens.

I'm guessing I have something messed up -- I hope someone can give me
some ideas of where I need to examine things.
