I know I am eagerly awaiting this; I tried fiddling with MythStreamTV
months ago with little result.

And a hearty thanks for this commitment from this particular MythTV
user. Away from home, I access MythWeb with ELinks, a text-based
browser, running from within a GNU screen session. Although ELinks
allegedly has some rudimentary JavaScript support, it's been very,
very gratifying to be able to use 100% of MythWeb's functionality for
searches, scheduling recordings, deleting recordings, etc.,
etc. without needing to view graphical icons, even down to little
touches like the [ Update ] button that's only visible (or necessary)
when viewing the Upcoming Recordings page in a text
browser. Belated--but well-deserved--kudos, to the MythWeb developers
for adhering to standards!
