MythTV to-do

The informational plugins (like MythWeather and MythNews, the RSS aggregator) need to run as on-screen displays while I watch TV. The idle state shouldn't be sitting on a menu, it ought to run some kind of Useful Information (weather, whatever) and the menu appears something small near the bottom.

Fuck, MythNews ought to have a ticker crawl option, and should be automatically triggered on certain channels, like CNN or Bloomberg. Thus, there needs to be a set of RSS feeds from someone like ESPN with the latest sports scores. And if the IHSA really had their shit together, they'd have one for their playoff scores. :-) MythNews also needs to grok HTML, to strip out tags and convert &#xx escapes.

I should write a module for it to interact with Phlink.
