MythBrowser is a plugin that provides a fully functional WebKit-based browser.
Do not confuse this with MythWeb which allows you to access your mythtv content over a web-browser.
Upgrade issues from earlier version
Default Text Size
To set the default text size:
Setup -> Info Center Settings -> Web Settings -> Text Size.
You can also change the size on the fly (see the keymappings noted below) but the changes won't stick.
version 0.22 and later
The default text size is specified as a value between 0.3 to 5.0, with 1 being "normal".
version 0.21 and earlier
In v0.21 and earlier the default size was specified as a percentage. So you may have had something like 100 or 150. If you have upgraded from v0.21 unless you manually change this your fonts will be 600 feet high and you will see just a blank screen.
Default key bindings
These can be changed, could have already been changed, via standard MythTV change key binding procedures.

If a web page requires some sort of input, like an edit control used to enter a search term, pressing F1 allows you to send all input to the web page. Pressing it again allows MythBrowser to again capture keyboard input. You can get smoother mouse pointer movement by lowering the repeat count for the remote keys used for mouse emulation in your lircrc config file.
