First, let me say that you have no idea how excited I am to hear that
progress is being made on getting support for the Pi2 integrated. My
family loves Mythtv, and being able to build a complete $50 fronted that
isn't a used desktop, is super exciting. And the timing couldn't be more

Of course, we all would, and if you can make that happen I would buy you a
beer or twelve if I ever see you!

I was curious more from the perspective of what I can do right now...
Essentially, if I buy Pi2s, can I use MythTv with an external player until
your OpenMax support gets merged, or should I go with OpenElec/Kodi.
