MythTV does have some language settings, but I do not know if they
affect the keyboard:

MariaDB [mythconverg]> select * from settings where value =
| value    | data  | hostname |
| Language | en_GB | NULL     |
| Language | en_GB | mypvr    |
2 rows in set (0.001 sec)

I am not sure where to find them in mythfrontend or mythtv-setup.  I
seem to remember there is a locale setting that you get asked for if
you start either program when config.xml is invalid.  After the locale
setting, you set up the backend to connect to, and it should create a
config.xml from that, but it must also store the locale setting at the
same time.  There is likely another place to change it later.
