I was hoping that it would be easy (using the new MythUI stuff) (for 
somebody  in the know) to create a page with an embedded webrowser that 
just navigated to the bbc iplayer big screen implementation.  Would be 
better than my previous solution of calling out to firefox in full 
screen.  You'd still need to grab a mouse/keyboard for navigation, but 
it wouldn't be too shoddy.
