[mythtv-users] The future of MythTV

We can see from the number of Scheduled Direct users and the Smolt data 
that MythTV is losing users at an ever increasing rate.  We think one 
reason for this is it's getting harder and harder to record stuff 
because more services are becoming encrypted requiring proprietary boxes 
to view and record content and some services are moving to an on-demand 
type of service that are hard or impossible to record.

So the question is what improvements would you like to see in MythTV in 
the future that would persuade you to continue to use it? Would you like 
to see better support for YouTube for example or a better video media 
library. Better music player? Support for IPTV services? What plugins do 
you use?  What plugins would you like to see? Are you happy with the 
user interface or would you like to see a more modern one?

Give us your thoughts on what direction you would like to see MythTV 
take now it's original purpose is slowing being killed of.
