	MythVideo and/or MythWeather are often cited as good example code, 
because they are not particularily complicated. Not exactly what you're 
looking for, but they may help.

	It's nothing anyone will need to worry about for a while until it's 
useable (but there are some README's in there).

	It's not *that* complicated to figure out from the existing apps. It 
can't be, as I've figured out large parts of it  :-)    Also, think 
seriously about firing up an irc client and checking out #mythtv on 
freenode. It's a *developer* resource.
