* multiple interfaces 
   - HTML over HTTPD,
   - XML over HTTPD,
   - JSON/TXT over HTTPD,
   and as proof of concept
   - WAP (rudimentary functional), 
   - TELNET,
   - SOAP
* many skins (html/xstyle/snow/stone/blue/-_flat/...)
  see also new skin jason as RIA *1)
* Core feature
  - searchable, sortable EPG (Electronic programming guide)
  - view and edit timer, recording, channels, autotimer
  - remote control and monitor video signal
  - integrated live tv streaming (need streamdev plugin)
