Now you've got me! I said that because I fired up my old proof-of-concept
Myth box for the first time in months the other day and there were a few
things that I noticed were missing. They're mostly small things that just
work slightly better. I can't remember what they all were. One is that I
like the way it handles when you're watch LiveTV and it needs the tuner. You
used to get a message box telling you to go to the recordings menu, now you

MythArchive seems more stable for me. It was always a bit hit and miss
creating DVDs before whereas now I can pretty much rely on it.

MythWeb has the ability to stream recordings. I know there are other methods
