MythTV would need the approval of DTLA; the Intel, Hitachi, Matsushita,
Sony and Toshiba cartel which created 5C. But they discriminate strongly
against free and open source software, and have an unreasonable, illegal
and immoral requirements with respect to free software such as MythTV.

Since this isn't a technical problem, but a political and legal one,
I hope all replies will go to the MythTV user's mailing list.
