More to the point (well, I'm curious if no one else is), why did they
stop? I thought it was because people were selling MythTV boxes with
active zap2it accounts. But, as I recall, some who do this posted where
they contacted zap2it and received zap2it e-mail stating they were not
the reason. Then who was zap2it openly complaining about?
