People here are just trying telling you what is possible to do with
myth today.  If there are other things to due, it is open source, you
are welcome to modify it to meet your needs, but today, it isn't built
to fill your specific use case, but it is unrealistic to expect any of
the devs to pick it up and put their work into it.  To be honest I
find it a bit rude to complain about not wanting to spend a couple
hundred dollars, and at the same time hoping the people will volunteer
many hours of their time to do something for you, as if their time
wasn't worth much more then that.
