haha, fair enough... but use what you got I suppose?  I've started to
use mythmusic a lot more than I used to.  Although the interface is
fairly terrible (IMHO), the functionality it provides is fairly good
and I do like several of the improvements that the devs have put into
SVN over the past 6 months of so.

On another note: I did find the other patch I was referring to.  I
knew it was one of the devs, just forgot it was eskil and where it
was: http://eskil.org/mythtv/

Anyway, maybe Eskil can talk about the future of the patch.

I do kind of like the way the screenshots look in the mythstream
plugin as well.  It's not a necessarily a bad solution either:
In addition, this plugin handles streaming TV.  I know there's an IPTV
tuner available as well for TV, but I'm not sure how it handles
streaming channels, etc.
