    The earlier posts made it sound like text based browsers didn't work 
very well with mythweb.  I did eventually use one, w3m, to disable the 
"Show pixmaps" option.  Then it became usable with good ol' SeaMonkey.  
I should've done a table dump before and after and run a diff on them 
but I forgot.  That'll have to be another day.

    Now MythWeb seems to be pretty usable for modifying recording 
schedules and deleting recordings at least.  It just shows "NO DATA" for 
listings though.  There doesn't seem to be an option for running 
transcoding jobs either but I believe I can do that from the command 
line with mythtranscode.
