Client side, so each firestick with leanfront has its own recently 
viewed list.

Leanfront "recently viewed" also includes "watched" shows, which will 
not have a bookmark. It also includes deleted shows as long as you have 
a delay on physical delete set in MythTV.

A problem with finding all recordings with a bookmark is that the 
bookmark lookup is a separate call and looking up bookmarks for hundreds 
of shows may be slow. (This applies to leanfront, which uses the service 
api, Mythfrontend may not have that problem).
