Well mine arrived this morning so you may live to regret that last comment sooner than you expected! A quick compile had the test app switching various things off this afternoon and I'll be tinkering with integrating some code into MythTV over the weekend.

Looking at the XBMC commits, my gut feeling is that MythTV integration should be relatively straightforward. Is there anything I should watch out for?

Thanks and regards
