Hi guys.

What is the general feeling about commercial releases of MythTV bundled
with hardware?

There's just been an article published in Australian Personal Computer
magazine about 'Australia's first all-encompassing entertainment box',
and guess what... it's MythTV - with absolutely no mention at all of the
origins of the software. The article praises what an incredible job
they've done with their 'proprietary interface'.

The company is called Development 1. http://www.d1.com.au   I've just
checked their website - again no mention about MythTV or even the
origins of the code. From the screenshots you can see they've even made
their own theme - just ripping the words 'MythTV' and replacing with
their company logo.

It got me very annoyed that someone can just come along, rip the code
that you guys have spent years working on for no payment at all, and
sell it. If you guys are happy with this going on - fine, I'll drop it.
If not, there's a nasty letter about to be sent to the editor :-)
