Thanks, I'll hold you to that if I:
1. Decide to clean up my tree and release a patch.
2. Ever make a trip to Italy.

Dunno what has less chance of happening ;)

Yeah, this is a feature I want also, as we have in the vicinity of 50 radio 
channels on the Thor satellite alone :) I've thought about it, and mostly 
decided that it would be more elegant to use the mfd (myth frontend daemon; 
for the uninformed) to do the job of making this data available to MythMusic.

Trust me, it will be a lot more code handling the generation (could be 
pre-generated) and sending/coordinating the emulated mpeg video stream, not 
to mention the trouble of muxing the video stream into the existing stream.
