[mythtv] DataDirect gzip error

Not that I know of, I just have my cvs copy patched to not use gzip, which
is far from optimal since gzip can really shrink down the data. It's some
problem with wget not sending the header correctly I think, because the DD
servers are not returning the output gziped. 

Interesting you are getting it on Mandrake, using Gentoo here.
