So after an early finish at work i decided to try and make best use of my n800 in my myth setup. Having previously spent (and wasted!) alot of time trying to get linuxmce working i had the n800 left over and thought i could use it with myth.

Every where i have searched i have found dead/partially completed projects. Ideal would be to use it as a frontend but i have found several dead links and nothing working for os2008. Second best is to just use UPNP (probably via mediatomb) to play audio and movies but i would miss the live tv options.

Have i missed something really obvious or is this just where we are?

Im guessing they are all dead then from the lack of replies. Seems a shame but my N800 is cast out to just being used for UPNP playback.
