In fact, I just want to be able to use MythTV possibilities on any
hardware configuration (like laptop, pda ) but I think the frontend is
too big for a PDA so I would find another way !
I don't want to use freevo because it has less option than MythTV, no
time shifting for example !
But If it isn't possible without creating a new frontend, I will leave
this idea !
