Aptly put.

After I had to come up with some sort of slogan for a poster
(http://forevermore.net/mythtv/mythtv_thanks.jpg), some of the core devs
talked briefly about this.  We didn't get very far other than deciding
that "DVR" was better than "PVR".

I've always gathered from Isaac that he thinks of MythTV as just a pet
project, and that he has no interest in market share, showing off at
trade shows, etc.  A nice catch phrase would be cool, though, and I
don't think anyone is against the idea.  It's just a matter of figuring
out what it should be, and not go so far as to turn this into a complete
rebranding of MythTV.
