This issue is addressed by having one designer with specific goals in mind,
and I suspect to create a true consumer class device also forking from
MythTV, which might not be as bad as it first sounds so long as the designer
of such a box was submitting patches back to MythTV and then from time to
time, dropping their own branch, rebranching MythTV and then applying
patches to bring this "new" branch back to the place they needed for their
device, chosen interface, chosen feature set. Much as Ubuntu do the above
described process each 6 months with Debian.
However, that's no small commitment and someone would have to be sure they
could build a viable business model around it, whilst not being better
served by just going down the exist consumer class devices route.
It might be that "Another Sillyname" actually has identified a niche best
addressed by a project like this, but I don't envy him bringing it to
