Is there an easier way to search the archives rather than searching each 
month? There must be a better way.

A thousand apologies for not googling (actually, I prefer dogpile since google 
seems to filter certain political content, which brought it up on page 2) for 
the wiki before casually asking for the URL. I've come across the site 
earlier, but I didn't find anything useful for what I was doing at that time, 
and didn't make the connection when you mentioned the wiki. Since you 
mentioned it, I asked where it was. If you felt that was too lazy on my part, 
why make more work for yourself by actually doing the search and responding?

Despite that, I really think that site should be in the web links page at 
mythtv. It is mostly installation, but I do see some useful things there, and 
that's probably where I can contribute a bit to the technical documentation 
as I learn more.

If asking where I might find technical info, why it would be valuable, and how 
I might contribute to it, is moaning, I'm glad there's a lot of moaning on 
this site. A little orientation can help people become contributors to 
mythtv. But if you don' feel like doing that, just don't. Life goes on.
