MythTV is a single household, personal use networked PVR solution.  If
your son deletes your recordings you ground him.  If your wife does...
I leave that up to you.  If your roommate does, threaten their stack
of 1960's records?

If you want commercial recording and distribution software you'll need to:
-patch it into mythtv such that it doesn't break it for 99.9999% of
users (those using it at home)
-use something else
