I'm new to LinuxMCE, but have been using MythTV for about four years now and experimented with Pluto quite a bit in the past.
MythTV has gotten to a point where I'm really pleased with the install and functionality, but I would like a little more out of it, hence try Pluto and now LinuxMCE. Since I don't have any home automation equipment at this time (gradually working into that), I find that I am using MythTV most of the time.
I better get down to my subject question before you decide to leave this post, then I have a couple other questions. From what I can see the only way to get from MythTV and back to the LinuxMCE GUI is to do a shutdown of the frontend; esc, esc... Isn't there a way to switch from one to the other? I really don't see the point in shutting down are restarting the MythTV frontend every time I want to use it.
Also I wonder why more of the MythTV plug-ins haven't been installed in LinuxMCE, such as MythWeather or MythNews, since LinuxMCE doesn't offer these, other than using a browser (from what I can find)? I've added the plug-ins that I wanted, will I run into problems by doing so?
So to summarize:
How to keep Mythfrontend running while switching back to LinuxMCE GUI?
Is there a reason for LinuxMCE not using more of MythTV in the install?
Will I have problems by adding MythTV plug-ins?
