I thought this was really uncalled for. If it wasn't for Robert, you
wouldn't have said anything.
I'm no fan of Robert, that's a known fact within the devs, but credit is
due when due. if it wasn't for Robert that backend API wouldn't exist as it
There have been plenty of discussions related to using commercial products
with mythtv: remote, cable cards, VoD (paid services), applications
(Android comes to mind). I never saw such strong position before.
The only thing I thought was misplaced from Robert was his discussion
specifically about Torc project, where it's heading etc.
For a start, he's not the one who first posted about the iPad app and he
has abstained from talking about its progress earlier. He effectively only
responded to direct question.
If the app was still called MythTV companion like it was originally
intended, would you have posted so? I do t think so.
The name sucks, but what the app does remain the same: it's a great
addition to mythtv and make 0.25 a release worth upgrading to because of it.
Still can't believe I feel like I have to defend Robert in a public place!
