When I provided 'Firstname.Lastname at email.com' within mythtv-setup, this did not work!  The result was a blank line when you hit retrieve listings but no apparent error (other than listings not being updated with a 'DataDirect, Error:' -- no dd_state! when mythfilldatabase is run.

Thanks for the reminder.  Stuart Morgan actually wrote a patch to
lower-case the user ID in Myth, but it seems it never got committed. 
The fix should be in trunk and -fixes "soon".
