That's excellent..  I'm sure you'll find a lot of interest in a Pi2

I recently installed OpenElec on my Pi2 to try Kodi.  Once I added the
MPEG-2 license video was quite good.  But, the video skip ahead performance
was pretty slow.  For someone accustomed to MythTV, it seemed really
unresponsive.     I'd love to see a mythfontend running on the Pi2.
