Maybe to you. But maybe you know something no on had bothered to say?
I'm trying to explain to people who I've set up systems for what is
going wrong, I don't have the answers. I asked here, and I STILL
don't have the answers.
I said... (which is what I was asked off list by someone who doesn't read it)
consumers and is provided for your personal, non-commercial home use
only." FREE listing data for PERSONAL use. Including private
accounts, lineups, and data connection from PVR/DVR systems.
One would expect there might be a way to use this. Is there no hope of trying?
And... if the question is one of legality... then....
The list of partners is a lot of HARDWARE companies. Hardware
companies I'm happy to support, which were the ones that originally
pointed me to this data source, and seems a reasonable legal and
financial mechanism. So, is using THAT hardware with a MythTV system
somehow specifically illegal? How so? I don't see it.
Free data, for Private uses, which hardware providers have have
directed us towards. What's the issue preventing development of a
method to use that? Money? I'd be happy to contribute to a "donate
for code" development project to use it.
So, to me, it seems anything BUT a moot point. You have connected
some dots that I just don't see... and why you put those dots together
isn't clear either.

Maybe, maybe not. I don't know... and your not sure. So, "setting
for SchedulesDirect with no discussion" seems to be the point with no
support here. Moot?
