I'm guessing you're talking about tvtome.com and not tvtomb.com.  I have 
no idea if anything like this exists yet, but I'd certainly be 
interested in having a play with it if you create something.

One thing that's a consideration though, is there is quite a bit of text 
info about each episode.  It might be too much to display all of it (at 
least for some episodes) on a TV screen through mythfrontend.  But it 
"should" be fairly simple to link it into mythweb.  Take a look at 
and you'll see what I mean about the amount of text.

Is there a wishlist around for the next version of MythTV?  Maybe a 
scrollable text area for episode info could be created.
