   I didn't get much response from the last email I sent about
feature requests; perhaps it was because it appeared in the
archives as though it was a reply to a different topic?  Is
there something that has to be included in the email to 
make a new topic start?

   Anyway, a repeat of the features I was thinking of before:
1. DVD-like zoom.  This would include zoom while freeze-framed,
and during playback.  Also arrow keys (or assigned) would move the
center around.  Most DVD players can zoom in quite a bit.

2. dump current frame to a file.  Definitely while freeze-framed,
could also work during playback, but this would make less sense.

And a new thought:

3.  regular expression mode for specifying what to record.  With
separate expressions for the show title, as well as the description.
I have been wanting this for a while.  The schedule only goes so
far forward, and there are old movies that I would like to record
if they happen to show up.  I don't want to go looking for them,
however.  This could also solve the problem recently discussed about
only wanting certain seasons of shows, if the season number appears
in the description.
