Hi Richard,

I haven't actually used it myself, but I think this is what I was talking about:


I looked into it at one point, but I think it required Qt and MySQL to
be installed, plus a list of other stuff a kilometre (I'm Canadian ;-)
) long. I had my doubts it would fit well in the device's limited root
FS, and I still haven't been brave enough to try cloning the OS to an
SD card.

As far as I understand it was a port of the "true" interface...
meaning it would function as a distinct frontend, presumably trying to
display the video locally on the device. Around the time I got the
device I thought it would be cool to have an interface that could be
run on the device to select a recording (or whatever) and then have it
play on the main TV frontend, similar to what someone (you?) outlined
a little while back.
