Hi, I am Dave Hofstra.
I have been a MythTV addict for a few years now. I really love the open-source philosophy, and I am currently using Linux in my household for everything but money management and GPS tracking on my laptop. Those 2 things have proven to be impossible to migrate.
Anyways I really wanted to help give back to the MythTV project, as it has given me years of enjoyment. Initially, I made the photographic icons that are now part of Titivillus. This was a huge project for me, and I added some code to myth's XML files that allowed theme designers to start including a different icon for every menu item in MythTV. Although I am really proud of those photographic icons, it clearly shows that I have no real graphical skills other than cropping photos. The only other thing I have contributed is the Myxer theme. It is not really a theme as much as it is a script that lets you customize various aspects of mythtv themes from the command line. I have no programming skills, and althought it is a handy script, most people do not want to do anything in a terminal window if they do not have to. I may consider updating Myxer for 0.19 as soon as I get 0.19 up and running.
I think I'll spend some time helping this wiki, because I dont really have any graphical skills, nor do I have any programming skills. Hope you dont mind my long-winded edits!
I have the following setup
* Suse 9.1 * Celeron D 2.4Ghz * pcHDTV 3000 * PVR250 retail * PVR250 MCE * 1 Terabyte of storage as LVM cluster * LIRC IR blaster for 2 sat boxes * in addition to sat lineup, I also have basic cable * nVIDIA 4000
LIVING ROOM FRONTEND
* Suse 10.0 * Celeron D 2.53 Ghz * nVIDIA 5500 * Audio Authority A960 VGA -> Component video adapter * I still run 856x480 even for HDTV because I just cant seem to get a modeline that looks good at 1080i or 540p * IR reciever I bought from IRBLASTER.info and am really really happy with the quality of that thing
* Ubuntu * PIII 600 mHz * Homemade IR reciever that works great, but is uglier than the irblaster.info one in the frontroom. * nVIDIA 4000
