Hi all,

Apologies if this has been addressed before...

I have a few minor suggestions for the MythTV GUI. I realize that I'm 
getting this software for free and I don't want to give the impression that 
I'm complaining :) For the most part, I love MythTV, but there are a couple 
of annoyances. This is with the default theme on a 27 inch TV.

1. I can barely see if a checkbox is "checked" or not.

2. The setup menus are rather deeply nested. Would it be possible to include 
titles telling me what setup screen I'm on?

3. I can barely see when a particular part of the GUI (text field, checkbox, 
etc) is highlighted. Would it be possible to make highlighted GUI elements 
more visible?

4. When I re-enter a setup screen I often notice with some screens that the 
settings I just chose, say  a few minutes ago, are reset to some default 
values, as opposed to being set with the values I just entered. I'll have 
specific examples shortly. Wouldn't it be better to populate the GUI with 
the actual current values?

5. Is there a way to do a simple thing like see what shows the mythbackend 
is set to tape for the week? To see what my current recording rules are?

Thanks for your time. Take these suggestions for what they're worth :)
