	While working on getting Boxee going on my gentoo based mythtv box, I 
had a chance to play with XBMC, which Boxee is based on. This might be 
widely know by most on the list, but the Mythtv Frontend plugin for XBMC 
is pretty nice.  It allows for browsing the program guide, viewing 
recordings, Watching LiveTv (except for 0.24), schedule recordings and 
most of the functions you'd expect to do from a full fledged frontend. 
Just a heads up if anyone was interested in trying XBMC on windows,mac, 
or even another Linux box.  Getting both those working on Gentoo was 
quite the exercise, compilation was easy enough after resolving the 
dependencies, but getting to run was another issue.  Definitely a story 
for another thread.
