What's the difference between getting listings in MCE or some other commercial PVR application and using a separate application to download listings into MythTV? You average user would have no idea what's going on, in fact how the schedule 'downloader' works would be beyond most people.
Because having bought MCE or some other commercial PVR, you likely bought rights 
to download listing services. Sheesh. How long have you been reading this 
mailing list? All this has been gone over, again and again. And again. Deceased 
equine, meet buggy whip.
