I do see that, but the reason for doing so is that the bottom line is used for 
a progress bar (at least it is on my LIS2; 20x2) - ie. visually how far you 
are through the current recording, or how far behind live you are in WatchTV.

IIRC: I think there is a progress bar interface into LCDproc, and thats what 
mythlcdserver is using. LCDproc redefines the customisable characters on my 
display to allow a 'smooth' progress bar to be displayed (ie. defines a set 
of full height blocks of various widths).
