MythWeb is nice, but the scheduling options in the frontend are more
comprehensive.  While I was out of town, I wanted to set up MythTV to record a
movie the next time it was on.  It wasn't anywhere in the current schedule, but
with the frontend, you can set it to search for a show (or search for
everything with a particular actor, or whatever) and record it whenever it
comes up.  AFAICT, you can't do that from MythWeb.  MythWeb lets you schedule
stuff from the current listings and it lets you change recording options for
stuff that's already in the schedule, but that's all.
