My problem was that I couldn't tell which of the buttons on the confirmation
dialog was selected: two buttons, one with brown text, one with white. I got
the 50/50 call on which one was selected wrong :-(

Can't you just set the files to read-only in the filesystem? That way you
can control which videos are deletable and  which aren't. I'll probably
never delete videos from MythTV, but if I did I'd find having to enter a pin
for each one very annoying, and inconsistent since the it's not required for
TV shows.
