I'm not a theming expert but I ran into the same general issue. What
you have to do is find out if what you're trying to change is part of
the "end" theme or inherited from a "base" theme.

I'm not using the correct terminology but hopefully that helps.

I believe MythCenter-wide gets a lot of it's configuration from
default-wide. You can choose to change it there or override it in
MythCenter-wide. Just remember to copy the theme files you change into
~/.mythtv/themes instead of changing them in /usr/share/mythtv so it
will not get overwritten by updates.
