You do realize that Greg is the one who wrote the DISH EIT support for
Myth.  I'm pretty sure he's also maintaining a box for family that uses
it (even to this day).  So, your chances of convincing him that it
doesn't work are pretty slim.  Those having problems probably haven't
configured it properly or are trying to illegally access encrypted
content--and Myth definitely doesn't do that (and, you're right about
not discussing that here).
