Whilst I appreciate that it's hard to encourage developers to pay
attention to MythTV application it's the creation of the market that
draws the attention not the other way around.

Bounties have proved to be quite successful with the Asterisk community

been in the thousands of dollars. (and any number of other open source

It just requires a framework for success from the project owner/manager.
