Ditto.  Actually, my original thought was, "well, I'll try out this  
DVR thing with MythTV on some spare hardware, because I can do it  
cheaply.  If I like it, maybe I'll think about buying a TiVO."  Once  
I found how well Myth worked I decided I'd rather spend my money  
expanding my Myth system.  It didn't really have anything to do with  
free vs. non-free, except for my initial decision to try it out.

The same option would still have been open to me with Schedules  
Direct, because I could have opened a trial account for free and then  
decided whether to continue the subscription later.
