[mythtv] noob to MythTV development

Hi -

First time posting to the DEV maillist and mostly to introduce myself.

Love the app - been toying around with it since 0.25 ("hosted" it on SuSE,
CentOS, and now Ubuntu). Never really dove under the hood too much, but
with my last hurdle being some remote control woes (I use an MX-850 with
six devices and until it's seamless, my wife will reject using it!), I've
decided to lean into things a bit more formally.

So, I decided to poke about the bug tracker and cherry pick some
low-hanging stuff allowing me to get comfortable with the flow of things.

With regards to development:  I've been looking at the web pages and have
not seen info on coding templates for Eclipse.  Has anyone who uses Eclipse
setup code templates?  If so, can I get an exported copy of the templates?
(Spaces vs. tabs is an ironclad rule with me, too!)

On the overall architecture: Is there anything that paints the big picture
on how Myth is put together?  One of the more confusing aspects is what's
messaged or signalled vs. read in from the DB layer.  Most helpful to be
able to grok that out early..
