Yes, the mythtvosd only works when you're watching TV, that's why I didn't
use it as an option when building the initial version of the script. Your
installer rocks... I should do one for the Sirius version.

Integrating with MythMusic requires a deeper knowledge of C++ then I
currently have. Inspired by Myth, I have recently started learning some C++
but it's going to be a while where I'm comfortable enough to contribute
code. Until then, if MythPython (or whatever it's called) ever becomes
stable we might be able to better integrate with the UI... but until then.
