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.
