Though the HelloMyth plugin (referenced at 
http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Plug-in_developers_guide ) does not 
use mythui, there exists another plugin tutorial, mythtutorial2, that 
was developed using mythui.  It was quite a while ago, so it may need 
updating.  And, if you do work with Bert to update it (or update it 
yourself), it may be nice to get it into the wiki for other 
(license/Bert's permission permitting--I think the license should be 
GPL2, so it shouldn't be a problem, but Bert may have planned to do 
something more with it before posting to the wiki).


Note, though, that there are probably no good examples of what you can 
do with mythui as mythui is developing/progressing quickly (thanks to 
Stuart Morgan's hard work).  And, even Stuart (who probably best 
understands mythui's capabilities) hasn't had the time to really work 
through the existing themes to rewrite them to take advantage of mythui 
(he's been basically doing conversions for now so he can work on mythui).
