Correct. Believe or not there are a lot of Myth users who live outside North
But that's beside the point. It is not difficult to handle overruns with
scheduled recordings (in fact I seem to remember some talk of a script to
automatically handle sports overruns). You may prefer to use Live TV for
sports, that's fine. But you're not going to convince people who don't use
Live TV that your way is the best way, including the devs.
