Hey All,

I'm interested in adding an Experiential Computing touch to MythTV. I
would like the television to show me interesting live television events
when I might be otherwise occupied watching something else. I've already
written a program to pull information from the Internet to determine when
certain sporting events might be interesting and would like to embed this
into MythTV and use it to pop up the Picture-in-Picture when something
exciting happens.

My question is can I simply start a new thread in startTV and from that
thread actuate the PIP state on the TV object? Could I also then simply
make UpdatePosOSD calls to maybe signal to the watcher what is happening?
