Thanks Joe.  My point exactly.  Its not that we cannot afford $5.  It is
that MythTV is condidered a "play" project by the wife,  thus aquiring a
monthly subscription for a "play in the spare time" type of project is hard
to negotiate.  I am trying to convince her that I want to use this for the
long haul.  though at the same time myth has competition from the likes of
xp media center which I already have on another machine and I dont have to
pay for listings.  Until I get her on board, I am currently at the
tweaking/playing around stage.

BTW Brett,
What does your wife think about your mythtv venture at this time?  have you
been using it long, or still semi new?  If long time, how long before you
got your wife fully onboard where she used it instead of going upstairs to
another tv?

Im not picking, I am honestly asking as I am trying to roll this out at my
house.  My daughter (3yrs old) loves the being able to watch her cartoons,
which i have record.
