the biggest problem i've found that i have with this new system is that i
just don't like software deciding it knows better than me on *ANYTHING* (i'm
sure other people probably have the same problem but haven't thought of it
if i wanted that, i'd quit using myth and go buy a bloody fracking
tivo...the damn thing thinks it knows better than me about what i might want
to watch...it thinks it knows better than me on how to organize things...it
even thinks that in some cases i'm not just dumb...it thinks i can't be
trusted (see any of the copyprotection incidents out there)
myth is not and never will manage to be an idiot-friendly software package.
the dependency on the wilds of linux makes that all but certain. the only
people who are going to use this are powerusers, and often times, they tend
to be people who don't want to trust the fracking computer because they
can't see that as being good much if at all.
case in point...this guy (thread starter) did...and it's been costing him
his recordings. minor, i know...but still...
disclaimer: the only reason i live with the system in 0.19 is for the QAM
