Sigh: The ability to retract a post from the list would be nice I guess.
After giving it a proper setup, exiting MythTV completely and re-entering
(reboot didn't do it, had to exit MythFrontend on the RFE and go back into
it) it seems to have found it's head again (or "back end" as the case may
be). Both interface and Media are back where they should be.
*sigh* Sorry for the waste of space/bandwidth.
