This looks really great, and I think it will be valuble/important for
mythtv going forward. I noticed the absence of any mention of Hulu or
any of the major networks' sites (e.g. FOX, CBS, NBC, ABC). Are these
just in the "work to be done" category, or is there a technological or
TOS limitation that prevents this. I have been really impressed with
clicker.com. They have a great interface that lets you search or
browse almost any TV Show and many Movies and it links you to where
they are available on the web. Being able to browse clicker.com from
within MNV would be great.
