Having kept my eye on this thread this last week, I looked into the
Logitech Media Server and Squeezeslave and I am quite impressed.
Seems to work brilliantly for individual streams.  I have seen issues
when trying to synchronise two PCs running squeezeslave, where one
falls up to 15 seconds behind when one track ends and a new one

Anyway, I just wanted to say 'me too' with regards to interest in a
renewed mythTV plugin.

Ideally, I would love it to be packaged and included with mythbuntu,
but that is probably a different thread that needs starting with those

Cheers for your work,
