Looking online, someone did make a mythmpd plugin ( 
http://mackers.com/320-mythmpd ) but it appears the development on it is 
I downloaded the code and checked out the makefile header and it says 
"Nov 11 15:28:30 2007" as when it was generated.
It requires QT3 which Gentoo doesn't appear to have anymore so I 
couldn't compile it to see if it worked with mythtv 0.24 or not.
I don't see any reason for why development would have stopped. I suppose 
one would have to ask the developer that.
