Let me guess: you didn't use the Edit Keys section of mythfrontend to
edit your keys? Many of the function keys are already mapped in TV
Playback, so you likely have conflicts--which Edit Keys would have
MythWeb's key bindings editor doesn't flag conflicts--thus the big
warning in red at the top of the page. Similarly, direct DB editing
won't prevent conflicts.
