Thats not what I'm trying to say.
As for the mythTV portion, I just think its kind of cheap to be using that for tv viewing. I mean these guys build an awesome application like LinuxMCE, but cut it short when it comes to the tv viewing. As soon as you choose "Watch TV" it switches over to MythTV, looks like mythTV, pre-scales images just like mythTV. Why not just call it the "Ultimate mythTV plugin" Furthermore, and I know this probably can be fixed, on my first install of LinuxMCE when I goto watch the tv, mythTV tells me "MythTV is already using all available inputs for the channel you selected. If you want to watch an in-progress recording, select one from the playback menu. If you want to watch live TV, cancel one of the in-progress recordings from the delete menu. I remember having the same problem in MythTV and I fixed it somehow under myth settings, but those settings aren't available to me in LinuxMCE as far as I know.
If its never going to change, at least make it so the end user doesnt have any idea hes using myth tv. for example, give it its own default LinuxMCE skin, and make it so it doesn't have to pre-scale the images first, show the mythtv menu for a split second, and then to live tv, it should go directly from LinuxMCE to Live TV.
About everything else I think its just a matter of user preference, I myself wouldnt use the lighting, climate, security and guide listings options, but I know someone right now building their home rigged with networking cable throughout the house, he plans to have a computer in every room. He would love to have all of those options enabled. Basically what i'm saying is if I don't have the option to use them, I shouldn't have to scroll through them all the time.
Oh, and I tell you what I would use it for, A media center silly, think about it teedge77, an application that allows you to use your media, watch tv, AND IF I WANTED TO, use the security functions, utilize the climate control, and control my lights, all from the comfort of my living room couch. What an ingenious idea.
