Dave, maybe a random question here but is there a way through Myxer to
change the background/look & feel of the Program Guide?  My assumption
is no, but I thought I'd check in case I missed something.  I
absolutely love Myxer (and Titivillius), but I'm only so-so on the
EPG.  If I could somehow swap-in the "Visor" background for the EPG,
while retaining everything else I'd be in heaven.  Thanks,
