[mythtv-users] Remote works in menu's, but not Live TV

I had a chance to test out RatPoison, and the same thing happens. I can
control the menu's but not LiveTV. I even tried messing with the focus model
in fluxbox just to make sure that wasn't the case, and it isn't.

I'm really running out of steam and idea's. Please, if anyone has any clue's
as to why I can't change channels in LiveTV with my remote, let me know.

Thanks again,
-Ben
