Hi Paul

Happy to help wherever I can.

I'm currently playing with Mythbuntu 8.1 Alpha 4  on my test box (might 
have moved to beta by the 27th) and would be happy to bring this along 
if you see some value in having "bleeding edge" stuff available on the 
day.  Although only at Alpha 4 stage at the moment it is fully 
functional and quite stable with only a couple of outstanding bugs 
keeping it from being a "production model".  I'm very comfortable now 
with using this package to set up Mythtv in a backend/frontend 
configuration including Shepherd for Listings grabbing.

Let me know your thoughts
