    That's sweet. Nice touch with the streaming TV.

    Very nice install.... I am most impressed with the factory look, and how it is placed, but all that coding and configuring had to be the behemoth task.
    You are an inspiration.

    That is a great setup you have going.

    And you are in a Mazda 3 sport! We should race! Well maybe e-race :P

    I am very impressed with your setup, what is your core distro?

    All the configuration did take time, especially getting Direct Rendering working, but ready for a shocker?

    I did NO coding. I put this together with software already out there. Granted I modified the hell out of things. Like the MythTV UI and theme. But the closest I came to coding was a bunch of Bash scripts to handle all the behind the scenes stuff.

    Gentoo - I use it for everything. In fact I even have my fiance on it. I am happy to report that my home is 100% Winblows free

    I saw you were looking to work on a EPIA Gentoo write in the future. I would love to read through this. I tried (and installed) Gentoo on mine but like you said, it was a pain in the ***. I'm currently running win98 just for the fast load times but I would love to hear from someone to who has gotten Gentoo working (and seemingly flawlessly).

    VERY Nice! I wrote a python MP3 front end (see thread on this forum), since I couldn't find a good music browser out there - sounds like Myth is cool - hadn't seen that one.

    Did you manage to get 800x480 working? My only concern about 4:3 resolutions would be video/TV, which would appear "squashed" (or is there a way around that in the player?).

    Impressive! How much does EV-DO cost you? I'd be content streaming music to my car, but you're streaming video!
