Did anything happen on this meetup? I spent a fruitless month last year
trying to get various myth distros and plutohome to work reliably on a
shuttle box with a pvr500 mce. Had to ditch it in the end and am running
windows to do my media stuff now.
With that in mind I'd love to meet up with a few heads to get something
going. I'm more than happy to provide the space at my flat in Portobello but
its tiny and I couldn't have more than 4 people. The advantage is that
there's easy access to internet, lots of hardware to play with and a fridge
to store plenty of beers :)
BTW If anyone is looking for a quick intro to setting up a myth box head on
over to the systm section of the revision3 site. There's a nice video on the
basic setup of a mythbox.
