Well, speaking for myself,  I only have a single-tuner system right now, as
each tuner requires another STB and another IR blaster, meaning around $200
of equipment, and I already blew my wad on my initial system.  It's not
*that* surprising to encounter such systems, and to exclude them (or worse,
deride them) seems unnecessarily rude.

Frankly, the idea of having *6* seems like unbelievable overkill to me.  The
only reason I can see for such a system is bragging rights.  But, hey, it's
your choice and your money, so who am I to criticize?

Not that I think devsk is necessarily correct.  My point is simply that this
kind of elitism is hardly constructive.  There are many types of Myth users,
and I would *hope* the project makes an attempt to accomodate more than just
the power users with too much disposable income.
