HTPCs were in the living room and had to look cool. Ahanix made some amazing cases, and Soundgraph had superb universal remote controls and vacuum fluorescent displays.
I purchased a remote control unit and hacked the protocol it was using over USB and started writing a Linux driver extension. Encouraged by the MythTV community I also picked up a VFD display and modified an existing LCD dispay driver.
The MythTV wiki has a page on iMON support with my contributions!
