On a similar note, do we have some kind of estimate of total MythTV
users? I think it's a good idea in theory, I' m wondering whether such
a venture would be sustainable due to a) the total number of MythTV
users, and b) the proportion of those who would actively contribute
content, especially if they could contribute.

Perhaps something that interfaces between the remote-controlled
frontend and the TV listings would be a suitable application - e.g. a
central server contains the details of the ratings/suggestions of
shows/movies that users can make via the remote from their armchair
when checking the listings (e.g. menu option 'Mark as recommended')).
A similar feature could then be used to filter future listings to show
those shows/movies that are recommended or highly recommended by other
MythTV users but with the option to add opinions which can be read if
the users so wish.
