I assume you saw the code I posted for the button.  Just in case you
still need a button to add HULU, I added a HULU button using firefox
to watch The Daily Show.  Looks pretty complicated looking at it now
and I have no idea why I did what I did when I set it up.  I always
say I should take notes about what I do but never seem to.  A note, I
have two monitors and myth runs on the secondary one.  The primary one
is for control.

     <text>The Daily Show</text>
     <action>EXEC  xset -dpms ; DISPLAY=":0.1"  /usr/bin/firefox
"http://www.hulu.com/the-daily-show-with-jon-stewart" </action>
