MythTV is Open Source.  That means that if there is a feature or function 
that you want, you have access to the code, and explicit permission to 
modify it (so long as you make the result available on the same terms).

I did a search on Gossamer Threads last night.  Of the over 130 messages you 
have posted since you started in April of this year, I could find none that 
involved >>you<< helping >>someone else<< solve a problem.  The topic 
appeared to consistently be either getting your problems solved, or 
complaining about SD (all but 5 of your messages since August 7).

Allow me to suggest that if you had taken the time you have spent 
complaining about SD (and this list) and used it to research, code and 
document the alternative (TitanTV, scraper, ouiji-board-to-firewire-
interface, whatever) that you claim is preferable, you'd either be done by 
now, or would have concluded that it wasn't really worth the effort after 

Now, please stop insulting those of us who have already reached the latter 

This list isn't censored (heck, with some of the stuff you've said, it 
obviously isn't moderated).  Free speech doesn't mean that anyone has to 
agree with you, or even listen to you.

Everyone else,

What do you say we just let him rant until he gets tired of arguing with 
nobody and maybe turns to something more productive?
