ok, the position issue is fixed.  Dunno what to say about the "stuck on"
part.  It's just plain old onmouseover/onmouseout stuff.  I've added
some checking into this to make SURE that only one popup is shown at a
time, but that's the best I know how to do.

ok, mouseovers are off by default.  Though I looked at page size on my
machine.  It turns out that most of the "load time" is actually the
browser rendering the offscreen elements.

I don't have an RPM for cvs at the moment, so it'll take me a bit to
track down a working spec.  And as I said before, sorting does still
need to be addressed.

question...  At the moment, I'm grabbing this info from the database. 
But this gets cumbersome as more and more recording types are added.  Is
there a field in the data returned from the backend that will give me
the recording type?

I've also taken some time to get some better default colors.  There is
probably still a bit of work that needs done on this, but at least
they're tolerable now.  There's also a legend if you mouseover the word
"mythtv" in the command bar under the big logo.
