Nice one!, really appreciate your work on this!, Ive compiled and
installed myth, but I cannot get mythregistercodec to work, even you
example posted on trac does not work, there are mismatched quotes in
the example (key is opened with ' and closed with "), but even after
fixing that it refuses to write them to the registry:

mythregistercodec -r $HOME/.mythtv/registry -k
"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\ProductID" -v
Couldn't process key
Must specify '-r' and either '-k' or '-l'

Ive tried "" and ' and I have been using my real productid , although
I had to take it from the control panel system applet as I am running
vista and there doesnt appear to be a registry key.
