Also, for Phil, the keys.txt (
http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/browser/trunk/mythtv/keys.txt#L182) and HOWTO
( http://www.mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO-11.html#ss11.1 , under EPG)
tend to be mostly correct (and are, in this case, correct--except don't
provide the extra info Paul provided).  If anyone finds anything wrong
in there, please let me know, and I'll update it.

This setting assassin is all for removing it (which would mean it's
always enabled, right?).

Allow channel jumping in guide
If enabled, you will be able to press numbers and jump the selection to
whatever channel you enter.
