Oh, I know it's a suggestion...and a good one at that (I'd like it myself) :)
I only wanted to point out that, AFAIK, MythTV isn't really trying to

just starting to feel like there's people hiding on the list, licking
their lips, waiting to sell premade Myth STBs to people. People will
always try to make money off of other's work I guess :)
Sorry if I sounded like I was attacking you!
