Description

I have a HDTV and LCD monitor (twinview) when mythtv has the mouse/kb focus the remote works in the channel list , if I switch to the lcd and loose the focus the remote stops but works for every think else outside of the guide

annoying , when Wife wants to change channels and I am working on something on the monitor :)

this pertains to the up/down and pg-up/pg-down keys and they work once then stop the back or stop works

Ditto this has been the behavior since .19

I run two frontends on one box one on :0.0 and one on :0.1. When focus is lost i loose being able to navigate the guide screen and the context menus that pop up.

A temp workaround for me has been to go to the recordings screen, hit menu, hit stop, hit menu, then i seem to have control again and can go back to the guide screen. But once I do this on one frontend the other gets affected.

Same here, strange that IR control for everthing else continues just fine.
