I have about 7,000 tracks in my library. I got excited and copied it  
all to my mythtv box, but I don't use it because it's a pain. I don't  
know C at all, but I was considering writing something in Perl or PHP  
that would allow some easy browsing/playlist selection stuff and add  
it to my MythWeb. I would probably keep it completely separate from  
Myth and use a SQLite DB or something so it's portable. I'm sure  
there are tons of scripts out there that do this, but I would keep  
the interface TV/IR Remote friendly specifically for using on my  
mythtv frontend.

Now to only find the time to do it...
