    Touchscreen with MythTV or Freevo?

    Do either MythTV or Freevo support mouse input? It's looking like either of those frontends are going to be the best bet right now (until Silverwolf 2.0 makes it out ) but I can't find any info that suggests they'll work with a touchscreen.

    I should have some teaser screenshots available within the next two weeks. Creating the default skin is taking longer than the coding
    Silverwolf 2 is dead.
    Silverwolf 3...?

    Technically MythTV doesn't support mouse input, however, it seems to respond to mice anyway, and just lacks the pointer being displayed.

    myth has some very basic touchscreen support: i.e selecting items works, but there's no back button so you have to use ESC for it; also selecting the music titles inside mythmusic doesn't work with the touchscreen

    expect things to get better in futures (question is just how far in future.. )

    Well, I installed Freevo, and it has zero mouse support. Going to get MythTV installed soon and see how well 0.19 works with the mouse. 0.20 will have full mouse (and mouse gesture) support, so once that comes out, I'll be set. Now it's a race...MythTV 0.20, or Silverwolf 2.0?
