MythLCD is ONLY a test program. If you want to enable lcd support, you
need to configure mythtv with --enable-lcd
The LCD support is useful mainly in mythmusic. In that module, it
displays the current song, and the status of the song. If your LCD has
a keypad, you can navigate the menus, select songs, play songs, etc.
