I agree entirely with Brad. I want to know about the bluetooth remote  
stuff, but the whiney voiceover was just SO annoying - I've seen this

In the unlikely event you've been reading my posts closely, I'm yet a  
talker, no a doer, on the MythTV front.

(My excuse: I bought a Nintendo in December and for the first time  
ever, a TV (secondhand). I got interested in MythTV & decided to  
upgrade to a set with DVI or HDMI input before proceeding. That  
arrived last week, so I should be good to go on the MythTV build in  
the next couple of weeks).

So I was really impressed with MythTV from the video - I thought the  
OSDs were FANTASTIC. But I noticed that they were in colour - does
