Well, I got SharePort  to work on my MythTV system so my wife's
MacBook can play music with iTunes over wifi and have the audio come
out on the TV speakers via HDMI.
I still haven't worked out why pulse audio prevents connections from
applications started via ssh sessions. It only works if I run
SharePort in a terminal open on the Xorg desktop.
Next task is to work out how to configure PulseAudio to accept network
connections via avahi (mdns) so that I can play music from my Linux
laptop to the MythTV box too.
