mplayer keys don't work

Seems like MythTV blocks all keypresses to other processes. I tried to run mplayer from the shell with and without MythTV running in background. With MythTV keypresses didn't work and without they did. Seems like before starting mplayer MythTV should release some hooks. I'm not familiar with X and MythTV though, so can't say for sure. Another detail which may be relevant: I didn't start any window manager. Maybe an issue with focus? Thanks!

Yes it is a focus issue, you must run a window manager if you wish to use a third party application like mplayer.

But why MythTV can't grant focus by itself? Dependency on window manager seems to be clumsy. Maybe we transform this bug to an enchancement?

Window managers do more than just allow rearranging windows.
