I added back that feature to my fork sometime ago

Its a clever idea but do you think most MythTV users will know what a
binary search is? It would just confuse the hell out of most people.
I've got a similar number of tracks to you and using the button list

keypresses (2 of those are to open and close the search popup) so I win :).
