Howdy Rob,

What I should have said was "use AJAX in the same way gmail does".

The current Mythweb appears to refetch/reload the entire page on each
mouse click, which isn't the best thing to do from an interactivity
standpoint.  Example: go to upcoming page when you have a number of
pages of number of upcoming recordings.  Click "Don't record" on one.
Sometimes it takes a considerable period of time to (haven't yet tried
to figure out why it takes so long - but this is on a 2.2 GHz C2D, so
I don't think its cpu utilization).

But my idea is that any page on Mythweb which has a list of
information (recording schedules, upcoming recordings, recorded
programs, etc) should look like Gmail, with it's various options to do
different things to many checked items.  Usability would be greatly

Anyone aware of something like that being worked on by anyone?
