    I think that "suggestions" based on what's in mythvideo but visible
through the recordings list would be a cool idea as well. I've been 
meaning to create a sort of mock-up of this but haven't gotten around to
it. You could even drive it off of the program guide.

    See "The Gauntlet" in the guide and present it to the user as a 
suggestion but use their pre-recorded copy for the program source.

    I've already got a hack to sequentially move through videos one
at a time in order but that hack depends on the fact that my player
is NOT integrated in MythTV.
