Comment(by anonymous):

 Oh FGS danielk, you haven't done any 'digging'.  You are just frightened
 of what you don't understand.  This is a -religious- issue for you and
 other devs.

 Are you not aware that auto commercial skip (which is built-in to MythTV)
 is ostensibly illegal? Yes, ReplayTV was actually sued for this.

 And are you not aware that whenever Big Media doesn't like something, they
 always, always send a cease and desist giving plenty of time for the
 'offensive' function to be removed, before any legal action is even

 And are you not aware that a number of very large corporations are selling
 this very function?   Hauppauge has sold millions of HD-PVRs.

 And SageTV and MediaCenter have had R5000 functionality BUILT IN FOREVER,
 without Big Media's permission.  No different than MythTV R5000
 functionality.  These are big corporations who have the legal expertise to
 actually understand the issues.

 Your fears are further proof to me  that innovation in MythTV is dead.  I
 look forward to XBMC.
