So we are clear, the original poster only did not know about the option for
Menu Theme in Appearances --> Setup. There are two choices in that menu,
"Default" and "Classic". The original poster really only wanted to know how
to set it to "Classic" from within Mythtv. Editing the xml files is
certainly dangerous, and probably best done within a spare copy of the
theme's original folder.
