If its any consolation daballiemo, my wife has very poor eyesight from 12 ft across the room to fully utilize the LMCE menu system in relations to the Video Menu. She uses MythTV daily for watching and playing back of all recordings. I have scripts in place that remove commercials, and this really makes MythTV a good playback platform. I have even gone as far to change what the orbiter lists as TV to say MythTV, so she knows right where to go. She uses Mythweb to schedule her recordings, and she watches them from within MythTV. She does this by going from MythTV, hitting the button to bring up the LMCE menu, and selecting the recordings. To make WAF even easier, pick up an MCE remote from e-bay or something, it actually has a live tv button on it which launches MythTV and it also has a recorded tv button, which magically jumps right to the MythTV recording menu, from within MythTV. I have even gone as far as to put her favorite MyhTV theme on there, and change the xorg.conf file to use 100x100 DPI fonts, to better enhance the BlooTube theme she likes so much. These little things can make WAF easy to achieve. A note here, we were a Knoppmyth family for several years before the LMCE project came to life in my place, so this made it very easy for her to accept.
I personally like using the gyration remote, and the LMCE video menu, to filter for children, and select their shows for playback, with the gyration this is like 4 clicks, but if using MythTV keeps LMCE running in my home, more power to her
