I've been trying to make a version of Myth (The frontend, at least)
for Windows, but it REALLY doesn't work (Needs porting to QT4, and
work to get it to compile under MinGW).

However, all is not lost, as you could use coLinux to run Linux inside
your Windows box (As a service, even), and (if you can extract the
daemon from MythBackend) run MythJob on there.
