that you can discard a notification with ESC is actually not something I
intended and is a side effect on how mythui handle windows.

During video playback, things are drawn completely differently, there's no
focus handling of any kind, as such, ESC only works on the main window.

need to look into it

Drawing in non-opengl screen is giving an absolute grief... I've been
working on it the past two days; for what I thought would only take me a
few hours... I think I've now identified the problem and I hope to have it
resolved today.
Having said that, I've been having that thought many times previously, and
none of them turned out to be the entire issue.

Core issue is that during video playback, the screen resolution is actually
of the video your currently playing. So all the widget areas and positions
are wrong.
