[mythtv-users] Crazy VNC idea

Aside from thinking I should be watching a Charlie Chaplin movie,
it wasn't all that bad. The preview was absolutely smooth, but the
full size screen was a bit choppy. Not unwatchable, but not exactly
something I'd want to call a pleasant viewing experience.
This little demo was enough for my wife to give me the
go-ahead for either a epia or pundit for a full blown front
end that could do music, movies, pictures and games with
support for a remote.

How is watching movies over VNC? I doubt the refresh rate would be
very good would it?
