Hello,

I must say i never really got used to the old .24 mythmusic interface
the only option i used was random play all and hit next until some
song that i liked started. But since this was  cumbersome so I rarely
used mythmusic at all.
I have browsed the .25 a bit and must say i liked the fact that you
now can easily select albums which i consider a huge improvement.
Navigating the music tree is still a pain though with a remote, but I
have ordered a keyboard/remote device to see if that works a bit
better with mythmusic.

But for the alternatives, there used to be a squeezebox plugin for
mythtv, the current squeezebox looks a bit more like mythmusic did
before.
i would love to see that plugin revived although I admit it would be
for the internet radio bit in stead of the mp3 bit.
Here's a few links
