Just my two cents, but I run the OSX frontend on my Mac Mini with
great success. I modified the main menu xml file and added an
option that launches itunes via a command "open -a iTunes". I use
the USB Keyspan Remote to control both MythTV and iTunes. I
programmed one of the keys on the remote to do a "command+tab" so
that I can cycle between MythTV and iTunes. But it works great...
