But will myth FE complain when it's local timezone is different than
that of the BE?

No.  Not at all, in the least.  IMHO.  Please, let's not confuse and
muddy a purely technical discussion with the rights argument that user
and provider are always going to have.  There is no reason why the
rights issue should have any bearing on the technical issue and it's
just the technical issue that I am asking about.

Oh.  So now the MythTV project has been drafted into the IP Gestapo.  It
annoys me to no end when product providers try to tell me how I can and
can't use their product.  There has been zero innovation in the DVD
player market because of exactly this.  I sure hope MythTV does not get
into this game.  Just provide the product and let me decide how I am
going to use it, please.
