[mythtv-users] Switching between Mythtv and Amarok

Thank you for responding!

After reading your message, and following through on your suggestions, I 
discovered that I had two .lircrc files, one seemingly autogenerated by 
Mythbuntu on install, the other left over from my previous installation. 
I made one a symlink to the other and now I have a little better 
functionality. However...

The status now is that they are both weird.

If I select the entry on the front end menu, Amarok starts, but the 
MythTV interface screen stays up so I can't see Amarok.
By the way, all I did to get the Amarok entry in the menu was add the 
following to the mainmenu.xml file:
<action>EXEC amarok</action>

If I start Amarok with the "Music" button on my remote, for some reason 
two instances of Amarok are started. Weird.

Any suggestions on either of those issues?
