Do you plan to include scheduling recordings, browsing the EPG and stuff
like that in the desing? Through the web browser or as a real hildon
I have been thinking of using the 770 as a smart remote for the mvpmc,
as I don't have a frontend computer near the TV. It would be great if
the scheduling functionality was done directly with myth itself. I think
I could also find some time to contribute to this.
The 770 is actually capable to display MPEG-4 video, as it has
DSP-accelerated decoder for it. You just have to transcode to
low-resolution MPEG-4 first. The device comes with a pre-installed
trailer of the Ice Age, which looks pretty good. I wouldn't watch a
movie through the small screen, but for previews it should be ok.
Perhaps one could be fit a whole movie to a 512 MB memory card and watch
it on the road.
