Yes, you choose the ohter programs option and then the mythtv option.  Then
it goes blank for 30 seconds or so and goes into mythtv.  After that when
you choose a recording you have the same responsiveness as any other
frontends. I blended the howtos on awkward and the mythtv sites to get it

and no, I haven't upgraded anything hardware wise - I used the patchstick to
get mine where I could ssh to it so it has neve been opened.  Other than
some extra software copied in with ssh it is factory.

Since youtube and mythtv are all I use if for there is no reason for me to
upgrade the hard drive.
