Yeah, the -users list is kinda crazy. I only read stuff where the

name of someone I find usually posts interesting stuff. Otherwise it
hits the bitbucket.

Hehe I was mainly referring to myth usage as it touches on a lot of
things from filesystems,
network mounts/shares, an sql database, capture/tuner hardware, TV out,
etc etc and the configuration of each often varies from distro to

use what they are most familiar with when jumping into a project that
has so many options :)
That or go with one of the mythcentric distros like knoppmyth,
mythbuntu, mythdora etc.
I've never used any of them but a lot of people do and makes get a setup
for a novice much simpler.
