Yeah, it basically adds support for accessing pvr software like vdr
(via external plugins), mythtv, tvheadend (tvheadend hasn't been
ported yet but can still be accessed from a linux box over the
network.)  So you get things like a main menu entry called `Live
TV', etc.  (And switching channels btw is faster than with say
vdr-sxfe too, especially for hd channels.)

 Oh and I'm still looking for mythtv testers... :)
