[mythtv-users] Is there a 0.23 "live" preview available in recording screen ?

Hi All,
    I really missed the "live" preview window that used to be in the 
recordings screen of myth 0.21 and the filesystem space indicator bar 
widget on the delete recordings screen.

    I was hoping that their loss was only temporary until 0.23 came out. 
Does no-one else miss these features ?

    I also started wondering whether it was something peculiar to my own 
install since I see that a lot of the TV settings screens mention 
offloading preview generation to a "remote" backend among other 
references to previews. Am I missing some setting that would at give me 
back these "live" previews of recordings ?

    I'm beginning to suspect that having a database whose content dates 
back to 2003 might have some bit-rot creeping into settings that should 
have more modern defaults.

    Oh and if there is a way to get that old space indicator bar widget 
back I'd be happy to try and edit my themes to resurrect it.

    Any advice much appreciated...

    Many thanks for myth 0.23
