The torrents are now up on systm.org for the mythtv episode. The
episode is quite slick and makes knoppmyth look very easy to install
compared to the *standard* distros. Shame the episode wasn't a bit
longer though to talk about things like themes, details about multiple
front- and backends (Mac Mini aside), and options for video/audio
collections. Still good to watch though - I guess you'd need several
episodes to just cover the basics in detail!
