Yes.  I plan to modify MythControls to allow you to override global 
bindings through the UI.  Unfortunately, now, you can't really do that.

So, the only way to get the behavior you want is to manually insert a 
keybinding for the 'TV Frontend'  context and the action 'SELECT' and a 
keylist having the key 'P'.  Note that you'll also need to set the 
appropriate hostname.

I highly recommend just adding 'P' to the keylist for the Global-context 
SELECT since TV Frontend isn't only the EPG.  So, assuming default key 
bindings (make sure you change the hostname appropriately):

cat << "EOF" | mysql -umythtv -p mythconverg
INSERT INTO keybindings
VALUES ('TV Frontend', 'SELECT', 'Select',
        'Return,Enter,Space,P', '<your hostname>');


Important note: Your mailer is sending out messages to the list as 
multipart/mixed--allowing it to send both an HTML and a plain text view 
of the message.  Ideally, it would only send plain text, but for those 
who send HTML, sending multipart/mixed is appreciated.  Unfortunately, 
your mailer includes 3 different alternatives to the text/html version 
(all text/plain), but all 3 alternatives are blank.  I had to work to 
find your question.  You may want to report this issue to GMX.com or, 
better for us, ensure you only send plain text e-mails to the list.

Or, more simply, this is what people see when you send e-mails through 
GMX.com: http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/409261#409261
