I agree that it would be a great addition to the project. I don't recall
seeing anyone currently working on this. The most recent discussion I see
is this


I seem to recall that someone had started some work on it but stopped for
some reason. I want to say it was JYA, but I don't recall.

When you get some code I can certainly test it as I'm in the process of
ordering a second Raspberry Pi 2 since over the weekend I moved my entire
mythtv backend to it (In the middle of an upgrade to 14.04 I had a video
card blow).
