Its the frontend that communicates with mythlcdserver telling it what to 
display. The exception is when something happens to change the list of 
recordings like a recording starting or stopping in which case 
mythlcdserver receives a RECORDING_LIST_CHANGE message from the backend 
and the display changes appropriately.
