I added back that feature to my fork sometime ago 
https://github.com/paul-h/mythtv/commit/8a9910a. I've pinged Stuart 
Morgan a couple of times about it but I don't believe I got a reply from

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 
search I can usually find the artist I'm looking for in 6 or 7 
keypresses (2 of those are to open and close the search popup) so I win :).
