This manual will attempt to describe MythTV in not especially technical terms, in an attempt to make it easier to use for a wider audience.

Like the program itself, this manual is being produced by the community -- the people who create and use the system -- so it's tone and depth of detail may vary in spots. It my hope to be able to even out those hills and valleys a bit in the editing process without offending the people. I've also tried, before releasing this section for general consumption, and with the help of JDonavan, to get some framework in place to serve as an example for later writers; a certain amount of structural coherence is a wonderful thing, and hopefully, folks will feel that my approach is comprehensible, rather than compost.  :-)

And a note, for both readers and writers: the User Manual should, by policy, always reflect the current production release of the system (that's 0.18 as of January 06, but the 0.19 release is imminent), and, when possible, the immediately previous release (in parentheses, or with numbered section headers if the changes are large enough). We want to stay as current as possible, but we don't want to leave large numbers of users behind.

And so, on with the fun... :-)
