Well, even if what I'm asking is not an intended use case for MythTV, I 
certainly hope the project is open for new ones. Besides, being OSS 
should also be open to be put in relatation with alternatives.

And don't ignore the fact that my primary question was if what I'm after 
is possible with MythTV. I just can't believe that my friend's stinking 
Logitech is so much more capable than my system :-)

Interesting to know. Is anyone actively working on this?
