Depends on how you do it, if it's providing text input in mythtv 
itself(e.g. search a recording by name) then if you're using a remote to 
send an 'a' it might be converted to an 'A' because it's the first 
letter of the line. A way to cancel that is to press the 0 key to change 
between upper and lowercase and numbers(much like the text-system on 

Kind regards,
