  IIRC, I was late to that discussion, and by the time I had posted that
you could contact me off list and we'd work on it together, you had
gone.  As to the install disk for myth-buntu?, well that's what I did
with it too, I got Ubuntu, installed that, added a repository and got
myth control centre, which made setting up myth on Ubuntu a real walk in
the park as compared to my getting Myth up and running in openSuSE.

  If your actually serious about trying mythtv, I'll remake the offer,
if not enjoy your coaster.
