I am inclined to agree with everything written here. I use this list
because I am able to read about various problems and their solutions
regarding the use of Mythtv. Also, when I have a problem, I know where
to go. The difficulty I am finding these days is picking out the
relevant material from the chaff. For example, this morning I had 68
messages to read and I doubt if more than 10% had any real relevance to
Mythtv. Why complain here about Linux for instance, this is nothing to
do with Mythtv?
