It's not clear to me why you think this has anything to do with the
HVR-950Q (as suggested by your subject line). Especially if you are
able to "alt-tab" to switch away from mythfrontend (suggesting that in
fact the keyboard is working).
Regarding the remote control, it is not supported under Linux (and I
have no plans to add support for it in the immediate future). Given
how hard it is to setup remote controls under Linux, I would strongly
advise you just spend $20 and buy an MCE USB remote control receiver
which will work "out of the box".
