This is something I would like to see, lighting control using x10 modules ,
security cams so if im
in the theater room I can switch to the cams and check the grounds,etc.
MYTH TV is so cool! Thanks to all you folks who have worked on it.

>Hello! I'm just getting started, so please forgive if these things have

> * "active powersave mode" (could be enabled/disabled by a cronlike
> job, making it active during work hours and late nights):
> Making the system automatically go to sleep and wake up by its
> recording schedule. This could "easily"(?) be done with ACPI RTC
> Wakeup (http://sourceforge.net/projects/nvram-wakeup), if your
> BIOS supports ACPI.
> * Instant recording
> A way to immediately activate recording on a selected channel.
> This can come in handy when there is no time to do proper scheduling
> (So you could just fire away a keystroke without even switching on
> the TV, perhaps Ctrl-r 1 for recording channel 1, Ctrl-r 2 for 2
> * Different user profiles. It would be nice to have personal settings,
> with a personal recording schedule and collection of recordings.
> As it is now, my girlfriend's programs and mine get mixed in the
> same list, making it difficult to overview.
> * High level recording directives: "from now on, record anything
> with Chevy Chase in it" etc, what would catch anything from
> interviews on talkshows (should turn up in XMLTV), or movies
> (IMDB as source).
> * A small system monitor on the main screen (cpu load, a red
> recording icon if something is being recorded, countdown to next
> recording etc).
> * I like to play C64 and Amiga emulatorgames once in a while. This
> would be a good addition to mythgame. Perhaps using xmess, as
> xmame is already there.
> * A basic calendar module. Could show random fun trivia on today's
> date based on IMDB, and you could import your favourite iCal file
> and have reminders on friends' birthdays etc. This could perhaps
> be fed through the RSS news browser.
