Thanks Jay for providing details about your experience with MythTV
Backend on a Raspberry Pi.

I assume the RPi links mentioned are the following:


On your RPi with the MythTV backend, do you also have the MySQL database
and Apache web server running?

If so are there any custom configurations you would recommend so that
everything can run smoothly within the 1 GB of RAM on an RPi?
