I'm all for programs like this and I wish the system luck.
I signed up last night bust have a problem. The Lineup Management
Site was down when I signed up so I pasted the cert code in a sticky
note on my desktop. Well I don't know what happended but the sticky
is gone now, and I have lost my Cert Code. I double check the reciept
emailed to me, and it has no record of the cert code.
How can I get this code again?
Also other then the ideas @ email address on the the lxmedia site,
there is no contact info at all. This is BAD. I don't like emailing
the mythtv list and including issues that are only for customer
