Ah this I can speak to: enlist the student aides from the Science,
Computer Science or Media Dept. Training 1 or 2 of them might be very
helpful even if only for 'remote hands.'
You might consider donating them a backend machine that can also run
MythFrontend and then use MythArchive to export their recordings so
they can use any dvd player to watch them.
This would mean you didn't have to support anything but a standard installation.
