<Ctrl-G> only works in LiveTV (as does G)--as they're setting recording
attributes. They also only work if you're encoding (i.e. not with
And, besides, you /need/ to check MythControls to see what you've mapped
everything to. I even gave you the names you'll see in
MythControls--TOGGLERECCONTROLS and TOGGLECHANCONTROLS.

More would have gotten you a newer card, which also wouldn't have Xv
picture controls. :) And, really, getting a 5200 at this point is
probably a losing proposition as (if it didn't end up there with the 18x
series of drivers), it's likely to be on the nvidia proprietary driver
chopping block /very/ soon.
What you can do with the 6200 is use nvidia-settings to set the picture
controls globally. The difference is that doing it through Myth will
affect only video playback. Doing it through nvidia-settings will
affect all graphics (including the menus, other non-Myth programs, ...).
