 Mythweb is written in PHP, it should be fairly trivial to edit and add
a link to the appropriate URL for any particular day.

 And FYI mythweb is not a browser, it's a web interface to the mythscheduler
and recording information. For adding/changing/removing scheduled recordings
and so on. From reading this thread I'm uncertain if everyone is on the 
same page.

 And seriously if all you are looking for is a basic menu frontend
to access downloaded recordings, or online video streams I would say
myth is not optimal for your needs. I would suggest maybe freevo
which is more of a menu to other content and uses a lot
of Python code.
