The offer to setup a MythCenter-Classic theme if someone steps up to 
maintain it is still available as was talked about in that thread :)

I learn a lot by observing how my elderly parents interact with MythTV 
and the wrap around lists confuse the hell out of them because there is 
no indication you are at the end of the list so they just keep scrolling 
not understanding that they are in fact looking at episodes they have 
already scrolled through. Having a hard stop at the top and bottom of 
the list just makes more sense to me. I maintain my own fork and build 
packages from the fork so I can change it to how I want so it's not 
really a problem for me if it's changed. Maybe someone can create a poll 
somewhere and the majority wins?
