For the record, that isn't the reasoning of the Myth developers. That's
my guess at the reasoning of the Myth developers (
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/dev/206265#206265 ). I am
not a Myth developer, so my guesses/opinions/statements/etc. should be
taken with a grain of salt (or ignored outright).
The views expressed above are not necessarily those of this list or the
Myth developers... ;)
