Update: New version available!
It’s been a while since the MythTV developers added support for gradients within a font. Yesterday I got around playing with them to get some effects I had not tried before. The new theme file you can get here bumps the version to 1.7 and incorporates some other small fixes and tweaks. Still broken are the MythVideo screens, that do not align well and show text badly. Have fun testing during the holidays.
