    Oh OK, I misunderstood it's purpose.  It's really a substitute for a 
remote control or a local keyboard.

    What I want to do is manage my recordings from a remote low 
bandwidth connection.  I've tunneled VNC back through SSH but it was too 
slow to be usable.  Had the same problem with the web interface.  
However, using the telnet interface was just fine in this regards.  
Something like an ncurses based frontend would be ideal.
