Tivo has two views for guide data. The one above which is to see programming
for a single channel and then the one like MythTv has

Could be a decent option to add to be able to switch between either views.

I'd just be happy if MythTv had the ability to lookup programs better
besides scrolling thru every single program that starts with an A. Something
