Small hickup for a lot of setups: MythTV is connected like a VCR, that is 
all video-settings and audio-settings are handled by the TV. But could be 
nice feature for people watching on the computerscreens or using their TVs 
as big "monitors".

I'll put it on my "probably todo"-list for as soon as I have the CC support in.
