    Oh what to do.
    My opinion? You're retarded.

    You don't like it? Fix it. Can't fix it? Don't use linux. Code your own you master coder you, run it in windows, and be happy.

    Unlike you, I appreciate the efforts of frodo and others on this board, they've done a lot for others and for myself with helping me on my own FE. Do you have a front end you built all by yourself? If you do, post it on this message board so others can make fun of you. I know I will...

    Retarded because he expressed his opinion? Now you certainly must be joking.

    He can express his opinion all he wants but seriously...if you want to knock on linux...do it in the other parts of the forum not in the nix forum...

    No no no, retarded because he thinks the FE on this site suck. No respect man. Probably has no idea about the time and energy and money involved in even making a crappy frontend like mine. Think of the thousands of hours and beers in FrodoPlayer, and he's still working on it every day. C'mon now. This is why I say he's retarded, any normal person can see this.

    To stop this nagging on this thread.. let's talk about something more positive.

    Got the GPS portion working under MythTV.

    Next step is to add voice information to the menus and some of the apps (weather) as well as automatically changing the weather information based on GPS location.

    Then I want to add a camera and logging to the app, log GPS information with still pictures and do a kind of video/car Blog?

    There is also a mythtv extension out there called mythRadio, which has a good radio tuner interface. I'll try to get the code and integrate it.

    Lasty I may add an extension to synchronize the database between my mythtv in the house (connected to satellite tv) and the car. So I can watch the lates recorded shows in the car.

    The last add is not very useable for me as I am the only driver of the car, but would be very helpfull for people with kids.. forget the DVD's in the car. have the latest tv shows.

    After I get the menu's working I'll spend time on getting all my hardware, audio and cabling done.

    I have decided to not use a touchscreen.. as I have no place to mount the screen where I can easily reach it. So I'll go with LIRC and a I/R remote control. Older cars like my 65 mustang don't have much room in the dashboard, so the screen will be under the dash where the airconditioning would normally mount.

    If anyone is interested in any part of the code, let me know. I am planning on posting it to a website but haven't had a change to set it up.

    Use rsync for the syncro. Easy, and works great!

    Thanks for the tip.. that will possibly work for the video files.

    I am thinking of making the synchro process a little more intelligent then direct copy though. I want to add an option to the recording scheduler where you can select to synchronize the recordings. So when you schedule a recording (or a repeated set of recordings) you can mark them for in-car use and only those will be copied.

    If I do everything the car HD will have to be pretty big (my server is 500Gb) and you probably won't have that much space.
