That would be Davilla, not Devilla :)

>+ Not sure

Any 3rd party additions get wipped as does the entire OSBoot 
partition anytime the AppleTV is updated. There is a method to 
disable AppleTV updates. It's pretty easy.

If you just want a FE to a mythtv backend, check out XBMC running 
under the AppleTV OS. It has a functional FE for viewing mythtv 
backend content. No scheduling functions but I tend to use mythweb 
for that.
