[mythtv] Sound and Volume support patch

How about a message on the main screen that says something like:
"Recording: Jaws, Home Improvement"
"Live TV Available in 16 minutes..."

When there's a tuner available, say something like:
"Live TV Available for 3:40 [Sch Rec: MASH]"

Ideally, I'd like to see these at the bottom of the OSD/EPG 
display, I think.  But we might be running out of room...

Dunno... Just ideas.

It sounds like my TiVo. ;-)  Works great.

One thing missing from the TiVo is some sort of indicator of future
programming that the unit is planning on recording for you.  So that
you can easily see when you'll be able to use the tuner to channel
surf.  This is vaguely supported in TiVo, but it's not well integrated
with the interface.  I don't have any ideas on how to display such
information.
