Currently it can be very difficult to tell when the backup or restore scripts are done because there isn't any type of visual feedback on the menu screen, and especially no indication of success or failure. It should be fairly simple to add some kind of indicator to the screen. I could be something as simple as a bit of text listing the most recent successful backup, say "Last good backup completed on 02/10/2009 @ 23:09".

I've given this a priority boost because mystery results (like lack of button feedback) are always disconcerting to users and it should be fairly simple to do.

I'd second this for another reason: audio only feedback is very unhelpful if you don't have audio. It'd be nice to have both audio and visual feedback, with an indication that it's still doing something so you know it hasn't crashed.

Is it possible to show an indeterminate progress bar, like MythVideo and MythMusic do when they're scanning for new files?
