It would be more convenient to be able to select a program to download
for later viewing from within MythTV for Android than it currently is
to use MythExport.

MythExport is a two step process.  First you queue a program to be
exported, then some time later (possibly hours) it appears in your
podcast list at which point you have to go and download it.  A MythTV
Android client that could download a compatible version in one step
would be a huge usability win even if this download took a long time.
