Regarding your qt/opengl issues: I had similar problems with menus following
a system crash (caused by HVR-2250).

Try launching frontend with "mythfrontend -O ThemePainter=qt ..." to force
qt if your menus disappear.  See this thread for more details:

AFAIK there's not much benefit to using opengl until 0.22.

As for the rest I'm afraid I can't help.
