This is practically *all* I do.  I also really love that MythTV can  
automatically rearrange things to maximize the use of my two tuners,  
catching reruns at later times so I can get shows that otherwise  
would conflict.  To me that capability is worth $5/month.  I  
recognize that maybe isn't for everyone.

It actually surprised me how much I came to depend on this.  When I  
first started using MythTV I thought, "Oh, I'll just use it as a  
glorified VCR, and to pause and rewind live TV."  But then the  
automatic scheduling stuff totally changed how I watch TV.
