as others have mentioned there are a couple Pluto threads floating
around. one turn off is that the bluetooth phone has to be a Symbian
OS phone i believe. that limits your choices a bit. Pluto's MythTv
functionality is a watered down version of Myth. both of those
statements are hearsay, i 'believe' i read them in other posts or on
some other forum as i've never played with Pluto myself. although i
have checked out their website and if i had the time and money, would
play around with it. :)
good luck with the house. i'd love more details/updates. :)
