No I do not.  All of those that are on the board have been OSS
advocates and dedicated much time to the respective projects with
which they are involved.   I have no doubts that they are ethically
trustworthy and will be offering a fair price for the service that
they are developing.

I honestly wouldn't even mind if they had some sort of salary,
especially if it only cost $20 a year for the schedules.  If they are
getting paid for SD then they would possibly have more time to invest
in MythTV to make it even better.
