Dark Knight MythTV Theme

Dark Knight MythTV Theme

The new story about fearless high-tech fighter with crime Batman was very success with both earned money and viewers’ rating (to be honest I wasn’t impressed by that movie). If you like it you can setup a new Dark Knight based theme for your MythTV box. Unfortunately, it has 4:3 aspect ratio. So, it won’t be situated for the wide screen TVs. You can download the theme from the Rapidshare.

Unfortunately the applications is not approved yet. But you can get an ad hoc distribution of a development snapshot here.

The MyMote is an open source application. So, you can get its code, improve it or make a donation to its author for his excellent work.

Roku Netflix Player is potential $100 MythFrontend

Roku Netflix Player

After Roku released Netflix Player and opened codes of its software people started thinking about using it as MythFrontend. Amazing functionality – decoding MPEG2, MPEG4, DivX, H.264 and support HD content (1080i/720p), nice design and, of course, good price can make with Netflix Player the same as was done for Hauppauge MediaMVP. It isn’t a problem that the player is designed for Roku IPTV service. MediaMVP was also expected to work in the Microsoft environment. But now it’s full-featured front-end for MythTV.
