I especially like the idea of viewing the video through the browser. Downloading would be pretty trivial. Streaming video/audio on the other hand...:) 

The themes idea should work well with the current "templating" model that's in place...could detect from php what type of browser they're on and display the correct scaled theme for the PDA/phone.

Just uploaded a "favorties" patch for MythTV that we can work into MythWeb. Going to first make some osd markers and guide filtering before moving on to the favourites section in MythWeb (unless someone else wants/beats me to it). Should be pretty simple:

CREATE TABLE favorites ( 
favid int(11) unsigned NOT NULL auto_increment, 
userid int(11) unsigned NOT NULL default '0', 
chanid int(11) unsigned NOT NULL default '0', 
PRIMARY KEY (favid) 

FYI, the 'userid' field is unused at the moment, until the concept of user-based preferences is implemented in MythTV/MythWeb/(Others?)...
