Are you going to just reface the scheduler?
I actually like the Mythv user interface with its hierarchy. It is Tivo-like and simple. If only the mythmusic was based on the same sort of UI :-P
So if you ARE going to rewrite a UI for recordings, why not make it common with music files and photo files. So it sorta looks like the Myth one, but instead of "All Programs" and then program listings below, you start with "Videos", "All TV recordings", "Music" and then when you slide onto that option the next level of scrollable menu appears.
It always seemed to me that the same sort of UI would be good for music.
-> Add to playlist
-> New playlist
-> Current playlist
-> Play once playlist
All of which go to
-> Remove from playlist (removes all matching songs oor artist name or genre from selected playlist)
Same sort of deal with photos. Just treat everything as playlists. Same structure all through.
It is similar to the current "pop up a list" UI2.
Is it difficult to populate and scroll a list?
Just an idea!
