I noticed that too during testing.  I did notice that if I launch the app
and wait (i.e. don't change to anything else, just double click and wait
the LONG wait) the menu bar goes away.  No clue how to fix it - it would
require some deeper knowledge of how mythtv renders and tells the OS that
the app goes full screen.  If it really bothers you, I'd suggest opening a
ticket in trac (https://code.mythtv.org/trac).

On Catalina, none of these issues occur.

I tried to annotate the sourceforge readme.md to help clear this up -
anything in the top level are built with High Sierra, anything in the
Catalina folder are built on Catalina (unless I screw up the upload which
can happen :) ).

Additionally, if you download a file and want to make sure you have the
right version, the compile script automatically puts the OS version in the
.dmg filename - so anything with a "10.13" in the filename was compiled on
High Sierra, anything compiles on Catalina has a 10.15 in the filename.
