I figured it being based on/off pianobar that as long as that is up to date
and is current
with Pandora's protocol/API change then it would be worth a shot in trying
it at least. MythTV
is awesome, being able to listen to Pandora (without using myth browser,
not sure how well mythbrowser would handle the site for one reason) inside
of MythTV would be even better IMO.

I already use pianobar and Pithos as I dislike, putting it nicely, their
use of flash and AIR,
I was just wanting to find a way to be able to Listen to Pandora from
inside of MythTV making it
more of a "All in one" system for me.

I don't mind supporting Pandora, it is a great service
plus subscription price is really cheap and
get less ads which I am all for.
