Do you think someone who knows little about MythTV would have read
this in another way?  Do you think everyone on this list has in
intimate knowledge of how recurring recordings works?

I don't make those assumptions.

But since YOU keep saying "go back and read the archives" and I have,
but are unwilling to look yourself… I'll be happy to provide evidence
for those in disbelief:

All of the following was posted here on this list, TODAY.  I will show
it, unedited, complete, in it's entirety.  This completely implies
recurring recording options are a direct result of paying Schedules

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."

Seems like an attempt to link payment to Schedules Direct with the
functionality of recurring recordings to me.   Seems to that data from
other sources, in this case if data came from TitanTV, wouldn't work
for anything other than Time based recordings.

So, Who's making things up?
