    I personally wouldn't taint my Network with windows but this might intrest other people.

    Yep, I'm sure it could be useful for some users...

    I mean if you have a someone in the house who use windows and does not want to hear about linux, he would still be able to use Myth

    So why not, but not for me
    lol

    just to let you know winmyth is in VERY early development. In other words good luck getting it to work for longer the a few seconds... Although i look forward to seeing where this project goes! A windows frontend is a MUST for me!!! [/u][/i]

    wheres the point??running a live CD like knoppmyth (however cool it is!) is not the same thing at all as being able to using M$ office and watchtv at the same time! I love linux.. but not everyone feels the same( wife grandparents..etc) They are always going to use M$ (in the near future anyway). WinMyth is a Great idea.. I was also on MythIRC yesterday and suggested that TV be able to be accessed from web access.

    right now, I think I prefer windows just because of M$ compatibility issues but I think I'd rather do KnoppMyth frontend than Winfrontend. The early screen shots leave a lot to be desired.

    Hopefully, they can get it closer to Myth for Linux quickly.

    I have installed it on 4 computers so far. Its sluggish in the menu system but the video is smooth once it starts going. Though so far I have gotten no sound output at all on the machines.

    Also one of my machines already had some mpeg2 drivers and i am having troubles finding where i can purge them and use the ones winmyth recommends instead.

    While playing with WInMyth I noticed that Windows Media Player has no problem with playing nuv files. If you create a samba share of the Myth video directory then all videos are playable. Not the best solution but it works.

    Sorry if this has been mentioned before, this is my first post.
