	This reminds me about an old joke about a pilot flying in 
Seattle fog asking  for directions to the airport...

	This is NOT what he asked for. I'm interested in the same thing.
I'd code it up myself if I had the time (but having a obsessive wife, I
do not). It would be VERY nice if Myth could handle this through the 
frontend. Not everyone wants to transcode their DVD's and strip off 

	Also cool would be some way to reference tracks directly possibly
in the same view as the recorded programs.

	The idea would be that the video jukebox and pvr can be seen
as a monster unified Tivo/Myth.
