To be honest, the basics are pretty easy. Now that the OSD uses
libmythui, you can add a MythUIWebBrowser element to any OSD screen
and point it to a web page. If setup correctly, there shouldn't be an
issue with flash, java etc and the possibilities are only limited by
what's available in an easy to read format. Otherwise point it to your
own webserver and customise to your hearts content...

Of course full interactivity etc is harder but the above is pretty powerful.
