Thanks George and Mike for your reply.
You both are right with your thoughts.
As I mentioned before, I only what to look onto the "old" mythrecipe to
understand how it works. Thanks George for searching of the copy of
Mike, I have already a modified menu to open up the browser at a cook website.
But in my concept I want to save all my recipes at at a central place, best in
a database to access the data on every computer in the home network and via
browser over the internet by a mythweb module.
For me, MythTV is more than only watching TV, it more a uniform interface to
access my most wanted contents.
For example the build in rss news reader in MythTV have nothing to do with TV
contents but I don't what to miss this feature.
