I now, but if I make it larger, the left menu will be to wide.  You can click 
on the preview to get a bigger one.  I can make the size of menu and the 
preview selectable....  I will try that if I have some time today.

I already covered this in my blog.  
My mythtv is installed in /usr/share/mythtv/, I updated common.php so it looks 
by default in the local subdir too.

Or maybe I can create a config file (xml file ?) that MyxerCustomizer can use 
to update the settings.  That's for the finishing touch ;)

I think it took me 8 hours of coding.  I never manipulated images with php, 
but it was fun to learn.

No problem.  But I have the same problem, I'm not sure if my server is secure 
enough.  There is not much important data on it and I also have it all 
locally, but still......

On my todo list is also integration with mythweb.
