I'm relatively new to mythtv, and I know these ideas were probably
mentioned before, but since a roadmap has been requested, I'll try to
collect this into a quasi proposal.

First, I'm refering only to mythtv as that is all I have used so far.

I'm trying to keep it general so it applies to all users.  

1.) Focus on some sort of integrated archiving interface (eg cut to
SVCD).  I know discussion has been batted around, is anyone actively
working on it yet?  

2.) bulk up auto-commercial skipping.  Is volume intensity being used to
assist in the commercial detection?  

3.) Search listings engine.  What if I want anything with 'Julia
Roberts' or similar to be flagged for recording?  How to input the
search words?

That's all the general things I can think of for right now... Let me
know what you think or even if I have my head up my ass. *8v)
