Well I for one am damn tired of your obstinate stupidity in refusing to 
understand that some people on this list do not want discussions about 
the use of illegal additions to Mythtv ON THIS LIST. Not because 
'discussion' is not bad, but because there are other assholes out there 
who are almost if not just as obstinate and stupid as you, such as the 
RIAA, who might decide that because some illegal methods are discussed 
here that ALL Mythtv users AND Mythtv 'enable' illegal contraventions of 
US copyright laws.

And that might mean that Mythtv would end up going the route of Napster.

So just shut the fuck up and take it elsewhere. Please. Your repetitive 
postings are now just noise. Every question you have asked has been 
answered at least twice. 'Ignorant' is 'does not know'. 'Stupid' is 
'does not remember what he has been told'. You have been told.
