Hey, I'm just stating a personal preference. Not demanding that MythTV
change their approach for my own sake.
And in actual fact, as I mentioned, I do have a Plan B. I use myth's
renaming utility to link the new recordings into the video tree, and just
use Play Videos to watch them. Totally doable.
I've been using mythtv for years and years. I've never used it as a DVR -
never needed to. I had a DVR. MythTV was originally a music player, and
then YEARS later a video player. I couldn't use the internal player at the
time because it didn't yet support the formats I was using! So I got used
to my own thing. And that's what I'd prefer to use. And MythTV is flexible
enough to let me do it!
