I just downloaded and tried out the one Doug mentioned (
http://www.mythtv.co.nz/mythtv/?p=29 ) and it worked like a charm.

This one does require your own webserver (apache) to be running and if
your frontend isn't on the same machine as the webserver, you'll need
to modify "backend.php" to point to the address of your frontend.

Thanks Doug (and the OpenMedia Limited folks who wrote it)!  I had
been looking for something just like this as well.
