Sounds a lot like Tivo's Suggested Recordings feature.  I have a tivo and that 
was one of the first things I disabled.  It ranks suggestions by the number 
of thumbs up choices you select when viewing a program.  I would come home 
from work and find the TiVo full of Yugioh or Pokemon....You would be amazed 
at how quickly 7 year olds will pick up technology ;)

That being said...I don't believe Myth has this feature..
