I've no idea what the plan is for the setting screens.  Using a web page 
would be a lot easier to implement than converting them to the new UI 
but one thing against it is web pages can be a real pain to navigate 
using only a remote control. Converting them to the new UI would be a 
better option IMHO but require a lot more work.
