And improve consistency with MythCenter?-wide.

Most of the consistency work was done in base.xml, with changes to colors and popup window backgrounds to be consistent with MythCenter?-wide.

Most of the changes to recordings-ui.xml make better use of space on SD screens, while still preserving consistency with MythCenter?-wide. There are a couple of differences. Having the file size displayed for the current selection is nice, but IMHO, not as important as knowing how long a recording is, i.e. knowing both its start and end time. Fortunately, I found the space to display both. I moved the status icons down a few pixels, which made just enough space between the preview/coverart image and the status icons to display the file size. That made enough room to display the end time, right justified, on the same line as the channel.

I also changed the wrapstyle for the groups and recordings lists from captive to selection. Recent discussions on the mythtv-users list leads me to believe there are a number of people who will be happier with the selection wrapstyle, especially since the default key bindings do not define PAGEBOTTOM, PAGEMIDDLE, PAGETOP keys. Without these keys, it can be very frustrating to get to the bottom of long lists. I think this change will make MythTV more user friendly.

If you approve of this patch, I will submit more along these lines. Fine tuning the MythCenter? and MythCenter?-wide themes is still a work in progress for me. If interested, let me know if you prefer separate tickets for each patch or if I should add to this ticket as long as it is open.
