Looks nice.  I've just installed it on my Gentoo backend with MythTv 
0.24.1-fixes.  Using it from an Ipod Touch 4th gen.  I can browse 
recordings fine, start playback ok.  Browse the live tv list and switch 
channels ok as well.

Few things I've noticed:
- Rotation doesn't seem to work / make any difference to the layout on 
the iTouch - always just two columns of icons in the main menu.

Keep up the good work!
