Introduction

I'm one of the contributors to MythTV. While not a heavy developer, I am currently responsible for the MythFlix code as a maintainer, not author. I have contributed various small enhancements to the code over time and have been trying to also help here with the Wiki.

My setup

I currently have a multi-system setup consisting of a master backend running Fedora Core 6 with SD and HD tuners, and a remote frontend in my living room. I run SVN in production most of the time and find it very stable with a high WAF.

Projects

I'm currently spending little spare cycles tweaking MythCenter (non-wide) for MythUI. Not many themes are targeting 4:3 screens anymore so the non-wide theme choices are sparse.
