Marking this as "Works For Me" because it does work although it may not work the way you're expecting in your testing. The popup dialogs require mythfrontend to have focus, so it appears that you are testing this by running telnet in another window on the same machine you are running mythfrontend on. This means that your telnet window has focus and not mythfrontend, so the popup widget doesn't have focus . The code in mythdialogs.cpp doesn't allow key up/down/left/right actions unless the widget has focus. If you run mythfrontend on one box and mythfrontend has focus and you telnet in from another box, then you can properly control the popup dialgos. If you still have issues while mythfrontend has focus, you can reopen the ticket.

It should not be a fokus-problem. I was telnet-ing from another Computer. I only wrote "localhost" because i wanted to keep the example simple.. my fault.

2 things that indicate it shouldnt be an fokus-Problem:

In the first example the key down works fine (up/left/right too). Only enter doesnt work.

While trying it with telnet the keyboard on the mythbox can use all keys. (I should have mention that in the first place)

Infos: I'm using fvwm as windowmanager (I'll attach my .fvwm2rc)

(In [8740]) Fix NetworkControl? sending keypresses to certain widgets and the EPG. Instead of posting events to the MainWindow?, just post them to the widget that has focus.

References #1111. This fixes the popup menus for me, but the lineedit widgets still do not work so I'm keeping the ticket open for now.

(In [8772]) Fix NetworkControl? alphanumeric key commands in LineEdit? widgets. Also add a few other valid keys such as space, slash, backslash, etc. which might be useful in these widgets.

Closes #1111.
