Just wanted to say, this is way cool. Well done! --WhyTey

Well, as the guy who came up with the idea, I'll say thanks, on behalf of Kkuphal, and MikeC, who's been turning and burning filling in the good parts this week.  :-)

On this web page, I find:

to jump forward/backwards by the configured number of minutes (default is 10).
This is great to skip quickly over commercial

and my head exploded. Who has multiple 10 minute commercials they need to skip? I think that should say seconds, but since I don't know if that is correct, I didn't edit the page.

Default directories

I want to suggest that the default directories be more consistent across plugins and between upgrades... I would suggest:

  • /mnt/media
    • /mnt/media/audio (mythmusic)
    • /mnt/media/video
      • /mnt/media/video/dvd
      • /mnt/media/video/tv
    • /mnt/media/images (gallery)

these could be simlinks to /myth/video /myth/tv /myth/videos /myth/gallery but one could also set their fstab to mount ntfs shares from a stable RAID5/lvm mediaserver or usb drives or whatever to these locations.

Reinstallation or autoupgrades with knoppmyth would be much simpler this way.
