It would be nice if the temperatures were also available in the Status
section of mythfrontend since temperatures can be an important part of
having a silent box (i.e. what if I remove one case fan ?).

As for getting the temperatures I ran sensors-detect which seemingly
was not run as part of the Mythdora install, and then I run 'sensors
-f' to get CPU temps.  Now, on the four values provided, only one
agrees with the single value shown in the BIOS screens, which is 32 C,
the other core being at 50 C.  I don't think that there can be such a
difference between two cores, so I think something's crooked.
