The MythUI theme engine was released with MythTV 0.22 less than 3
months ago, and a good theme apparently takes a month or so of work.
Entries to the theming competition just closed - hopefully there's
some good ones in there (I've only seen reference on the lists to 3
entrants, but one hopes there's others!).

Other than those themes which come with MythTV 0.22 (Terra, Mythbuntu
and Graphite are the only complete ones, IIRC), there's:

Blue Abstract
Arclight (only works with trunk, not 0.22)

To the best of my knowledge, the above listed 6 themes are the only
(more or less complete) ones available for 0.22+.
