I personally hate the horizontal lists and would gladly do without those 
themes to get back the right arrow menu. This is easily the biggest 
foobar in .22 Is there a patch to restore that function. I used the 
mythbuntu theme exclusively and would have no problem deleting graphite 
and the other horizontal themes. The WAF for those themes is 0. My 
acceptance factor for them is also 0. They are crowded, hard to read and 
ugly!!!! Right now WAF still quite low in general since she can no 
longer easily delete recordings. The I key is not bound to anything on 
the remote and there are no keys left to be assigned to that function so 
its impossible to delete a recording. This is a major hassle since our 
station frequently changes the programming to a local event and never 
sends in an update to the tv guide providers so we end up recording 
something other than the desired program. The only option then is to 
delete and allow to record again. Then it will catch the west coast 
timeslot and rerecord. Of course, thats impossible with the remote so 
she needs to go into the computer closet and switch the keyboard to the 
myth computer to hit the i key and can then go back into the living room 
and use the remote to navigate. A totally foobar setup.
