Although the support for non-US systems may have come from people other
than Issac, and probably a lot easier to modify software. It's hard, if
not impossible to write drivers for hardware which you don't own.
This doesn't stop others from writing drivers, and modifying the code
(cleanly) and getting the support added to MythTV.=20

The bottom line of this is that Issac decides what he wants to spend his
unpaid time doing.

I've used a WinTV PVR on a Windows box, and wasn't impressed with the
quality of the output.
