Right. G is the default binding for "Recording picture adjustments for
this recorder" (TOGGLERECCONTROLS). And Ctrl+G is the default binding
for "Recording picture adjustments for this channel" (TOGGLECHANCONTROLS).

That (F) is the default binding for "Playback picture adjustments"
(TOGGLEPICCONTROLS). You seem to either a) have something else bound to

Use MythControls to check your bindings.
