I don't intend this site to compete with anyone. Both of the other sites you 
mention are MythTV related sites. That is not what linuxdvrnews.com will be.  
Instead, this site is intended to do just what it's name says-- provide news 
on the Linux DVR movement. While I do hope to have lots of newbie 
information, it's not intended to be a newbie site. Instead, think of it as 
Slashdot, but with a much narrower focus of news on and of interest to the 
Linux DVR community. There are many projects outside of MythTV, and this is 
intended to support all of them.
