I am not using live TV neither.
That said, If mythtv works with 7 buttons, It does not mean that a myth 
user should not use more buttons if available !

I just don't like the fact that sometime I cannot do something, because 
I did not configure the appropriate button.
For a first time user, it is very hard to know what button to configure 
and which one is not absolutely necessary and it is time consuming. I 
does not give a good first impression.
