MythStatusScreenlet is a desktop screenlet for MythTV. Inspiration is from the Mac MythTV Dashboard Widget

MythStatus Screenlet polls the XML info page of MythTV’s backend (normally port 6544), and parses the XML information to display the status of your backend. It shows the next ten upcoming recordings, highlighting in red, any that are currently recording.

It also shows Last Guide Update status, a disk space graph, Load Average and Temperature as provided by MythTV’s XML status page.

The default theme (MePo) uses the MePo character from the Media Portal project. The MePo character was designed by Glenn Melenhorst and is used with permission. The concept of the MePo theme is from the MePo MythTV theme by zdzisekg.

About Screenlets:

Screenlets is the name of both a set of independently-developed widget applications and the widget engine which runs them. The engine runs primarily on X11-based compositing window managers, most notably the Compiz (under Linux) architecture.

Until 0.0.14, screenlets were exclusively scripted in Python and drawn in SVG. Afterward, support was added for web widgets (widgets which are written in HTML, JavaScript and CSS, similar to widgets for Apple Inc.'s Dashboard).
