Hey folks. I brought this up a while back, but didnt really get anywhere 
with it. I really want to be able to listen to my Sirius online 
subscription through my MythTV box when I'm not watching any television.

I found a very kewl Python script that some guy wrote that lets you 
listen to Sirius from the command line, and it works GREAT.

Now, the question is... how do we incorporate this into MythTV somehow?

I've never really done GUI programming before, I'm a behind-the-scenes 
PHP guy, mainly. I'm certainly willing to learn though. Or help someone 
with the project, if someone else more talented has the time to work on 
a project like this.

I know I'm not the only person interested in something like this... So, 
the question is -- where do I begin, or is there someone here interested 
in getting started?

The script I mentioned above is called "sipie", and can be found here:

or, also can be found on Freshmeat at:
