I would agree with you that the Myth Menu system could use some editing. I
know that in some parts the up/down left/right keys behave different that in
others. Also the UI is not the most friendly. Of course if we were not so
lazy we could change it.

I know this is going to sound strange, but how hard would it be to
modify the "Watch Recordings" page to behave in a way similar to a
Tivo?  My wife keeps telling me that she loves the folder interface of
the Tivo, and that the MythTV one is confusing to her (although, she
adds that it is possible that it just might take some time to get used
to the MythTV interface) and, more than likely, it will be confusing to
the kids (my take on it is that they will figure it out faster than her.
:) ).

What she was asking for was really two different things:
Is is possible to have the list on the left of all of the recordings
(the show name) be scroll-able with the item at the top of the list
being the first one highlighted?
Is it possible to just list the show names, with "selecting" them
bringing the user to a new window with a listing of just the episodes of
that particular show?

I'm guessing the latter is less likely, but I really don't know what is
do-able.  So far, MythTV has been so versatile that I am fearful of
saying "No, it can't do that."
