A perhaps naive question due to lack of knowledge but I presume the
current "fading" effect could relatively easily be replace with a fast
slide to the left with the new screen sliding in from the right to
replace it? I'd guess that was your goal and the fading was a nice easy
one to start with?

If so, does libmythui also support a reverse transition? e.g. at the
moment to go into a menu it fades and to come out of a menu it fades.
e.g. it is the same forwards as backwards. But if it were to slide, then
the back effect would have to be different - e.g. into a menu is sliding
right to left but out of a menu is left to right...

Just a passing thought as I wonder sleepily to bed ;)
