I disagree, I am as fanatical about linux as some
people are about catholicism.  One needs to believe in
something.  I have *bitched* at people giving curt
responses before and *devs* talking down to people,
BUT, this is a mythtv users list, questions about myth
not a sales pitch for things that work with mythtv. 
Going on and on about someting that "kind of" works
with myth in response to this thread is way out of
line.  Maybe you should have renamed the thread
"OT:buy a commercial product that works with mythtv
but doesn't give anywhere near the functionality of a
mythfrontend (was Silent HDTV Front End)".  Then the
people like me who read the list because we are
interested in mythtv could have ignored your posts,
instead of thinking that maybe you had something
relevant to say
