This sounds correct. You'll likely need to look at adding loading
cookies automatically in mythbrowser.
May be of some assistance. Once Amazon (or any other API someone
cares to add this kind of thing for) supports login via the API I can
give some thought to adding login/password handling in MNV/the
grabbers. It's not something I've given a great deal of thought to to
be honest but it is something that's on my radar. Mostly, I just need
to think of a clean and functional way to a) configure it in the UI
(not too big a deal, could have the grabber advertise that it requires
login and pop up a login/password dialog when the user attempts to
subscribe to the grabber, and b) make that information available to
the grabber (-u username -p password?) when run. So, not
insurmountable, but since Amazon doesn't have an API for logging in I
can probably defer making that decision/starting on that work for now.
