Hi Norm,

nope, not really. Mythweb is great as it is and Mythweb is fine for computer
access to the schedules and recorded programs. however in mythweb the
expectation is that the playback of the media is also on the device that you
are using.

What it doesn't do is allow you to review what is available but when you
have selected something for that something to appear on an associated
Front-end - i.e. on your TV.   Think of it as an advance remote control
where you can view the EPG or recorded program list on the remote device
when you click on "watch" the instruction is does not start playback on the
remote device instead control commands are sent to the front end for
execution (and playback).

In fact I would look to write this in PHP, but my coding is not up to
standard to hack someone elses hard work and so I propose to make this a
seperate module (although it maybe reliant on mythweb to some degree).
