"MythTV is an open-source DVR that was created by Isaac Richards
back in 2002 because of his frustration with his low quality cable
box. Since then MythTV has progressed into a full featured
DVR/media player. It has users all over the world and a huge number
of developers working to make the software even better.
"Now, lets get back to what you came here to see. Currently, the
interface is fairly static, theme designers can change the look of
the screens and move around the preexisting elements, but are very
limited in what other changes they can make. It is possible to add
new elements to the interface but these can't be dependent on
information in the database. The image above simply shows a curved
list in the new UI, it's not overly exciting, but it wasn't
possible before either. The first pictures below show the existing
Watch Recordings screen and how it looks after being recreated in
the new interface. As you can see the green dots, to indicate a
current recording, were added to this layout."
