Getting the remote to work isn't very trivial. Jarod has a great writeup
on this. So you weren't able to get TV working with MythDora? I know
you said it wouldn't record on the correct channel. Sounds like the tuner
wasn't setup correctly.

And a damn fine idea it was. Just trying to add a little flavor to the menu..:-)

Thanks for the kind words Thom. I appreciate that. It is a young project
and I'm still working on perfecting it. I did think you were in the clear as
all that needed to be worked out was the remote and TV-Out on the 350.
And your right, getting everything to work out of the box on so many pieces
of hardware is a big undertaking. I think even Cecil would agree with me on that.
