Since this thread has become a bit of 'What cool thing to add next?', let me
toss this into the ring...

Many of the listings in the EPG are pretty sketchy to say the least.  I
would love to see a movie out there and be able to hit the "info" button and
have it go retrieve the description of it from the movie database or
something.  It would be great to see the actors, number of stars (I think
somebody's got this in the works), year, ratings, and a paragraph on the
show, and all the other details.  What a great way to decide which
late-night AMC classic to record / tune into!

Maybe it wouldn't be that hard to piggyback onto the ratings-system code
that's in progress?
