No I am in Burlington, Vermont.  I have service from a city sponsored
company.  It sounds like similar service to what you have. I also have an
amino STB.  Though my IR blaster hasn't arrived yet.  Could you send me your
IR blaster configuration?  I've never used one before, but if you already
have the codes programed that should get me half way there.

In MythTV .21 there is suppose to be a more full featured IPTV tuner.  It is
available in the SVN release now.  Though I couldn't get it working after I
upgraded to SVN.  I think my mythtv database got corrupted because
mythtv-setup kept hanging.  I'll keep you up to date if I get it working.
