I knew about the product before I ever went to the site, and the regular
updates of knoppmyth told me stuff is happening, so I joined the list and
checked out the SVN, so I knew lots of things are happening...

(Not that that is a bad product, but MythTV is much better suited for what
I envision as my target solution...)
