Phoronix: MythTV 0.25 Is Still Being Baked With Many Changes
It's been quite a while since last talking about MythTV, since this popular open-source project for Home Theater PCs last had a major release more than one year ago. However, a lot is being baked for v0.25 -- the next major release...
Hopefully this will make it easier to identify remakes (e.g. Italian Job) and shows/movies with identical titles. I've been going through my collection recently and cleaning up the metadata, but there's been quite a few videos that I've had to guess which search result was right, only to have to reset all of the metadata and then refetch another result.

Huh, I thought r700 did hdmi audio?
In theory you could use the xmbc xvba branch which is basically already a branch of xbmc pvr which has got a client for mythtv, but did not test it myself. I do not use mythtv.
Turns out that HDMI Audio is disabled by default in kernels > 3.0 or 3.1 (or something like that). The machine under consideration has also been upgraded to a Llano CPU, which might not support HDMI audio yet... but we'll see.
