I been using MythTV since 2005.  I stopped using Mythfrontend about 10
years ago in favor of Kodi with the MythTV plugin to view recordings.  Here
are my suggestion on areas to concentrate work on:

skip logic.
 - Abandon work on Mythfrontend and instead enhance features of plugins to
 - Update MythWeb for recording scheduling/management.
