(Sorry for only noticing this thread now)

I agree that Media Queries would be ideal but in practice I can't find any  
properties that would indicate a "leanback" TV-like environment.

For example, in testing we found no difference (screen size, resolution,  
etc.) between a 22 inch monitor and a 40 inch TV. I'd like to at least  
increase a page's font size for the TV, as well as other optimizations,  
but currently can't.

As Tab suggested, having the screen and TV media types as non-exclusive  
would allow certain styles to be overridden for TVs without breaking  
what's already there.
