[mythtv-users] Cheap media case?

I just took one of those crummy cases, painted it black, did my own logo on 
the front and installed 2 fans... one in the back mounted on the inside 
blowing out, and the other in the bay the box is in... blowing air out the 
front! It works flawlessly!

I'm quite pleased with the performance taking into consideration that I went 
really cheap!

If you want to spray paint it, get a "flat black" spraypaint intended for 
metal and plastics...

Do you know if the VFD is supported by lcdproc? Also, it looks like
ventilation might well be an issue as there doesn't appear to be much
in the way of venting to aid airflow.
