Doh, I knew that. Just used to saying SVN. Old habits die hard.

I always do my comments from the administrator screen and had never noticed
that gray font. Fixed now! Glad you were able to get it running.

The two icons is by design, I haven't incorporated rotation into those skins
yet. The non iPad skins are WAY behind the iPad skin. Interesting, I don't
see deleted recordings, I'll have to look into that. Do preview images work
for you in mythweb? Anything in the httpd error log from PHP?

Hi, I gave it a quick try on an iPad and it's remarkably polished for a 0.01

Thanks. The frontend list is on the Settings screen, any frontends you've
enabled remote control on should show up. And yes, that makes sense. You've
identified a bug I've got in my list or resetting the scrolling windows.

Question: is APC strictly required ? I already use the eaccelerator cache

No, APC is not required. I would guess that Eaccelerator will work just
fine. The reason caching is important is that without it, connections to the
frontends are very slow. It has to renegotiate every time a command is sent.
With caching enabled, the fact that a connection was established is cached.
You'll notice the same difference in all of Mythweb's control capabilities.

Thanks again everyone,
