I reluctantly have to agree with your. Myth really needs some major UI
love and while I can state that fact I cannot unfortunately help do
anything about it which makes me sad.

I was always very proud of my Myth setup and while I still love it,
Apple's Frontrow and now Backrow is really stealing any unique thunder
MythTV had....

I really hope someone can really get the UI up to speed. Is there any
SoC projects that will really push this?

When you see some of the things beginning to take shape on the desktop
these days, Myth is beginning to loose it's edge... Just look at "Arena"
(a concept piece ATM)
