Twice the price of my mythTV box, but if you read further, like, one
sentence further, you'll find their goal is $20 a year.  So, if they
reach that goal, I'll have spent the price of my mythTV box on
listings alone in five years.

Big.  Deal.  It's worth it to me to have accurate, reliable listings,
and the flexibility of MythTV, even at $5 a month for listings.

Depends on how much your time is worth, I suppose.  Some people will
spend hours every month making sure a scraper works.  My time is worth
much more than that.
