My purpose was not to launch a so long debate!
I just wanted to know why it worked with 0.21 and not with 0.22.
I remember you that this is a user list, not a dev list! I don't have
the knowledge to summit a patch. I just want to understand why it is as
it is before reporting a bug.
In this case, it is not a bug, I just wanted to know why it is so
important to have the exact TZ on both computers.
My FE refuses to start, and I need to use CLI to understand the reason.
A proposal of improvement is that a failure that stop FE to launch will
appears in an "error window", it will be more user friendly.

I am based in the UK so timezones are different and there is no service agreement being violated, in fact I have an agreement specifically to do this.

Just wanted to chime in and point out that MythTV does get used like this legitimately if for a business purpose rather than for domestic TV. Also I'm not running the Myth slave just at the moment, I needed DVBS2 working in a rush and can't upgrade those machines to Ubuntu 9.10 or QT4 just yet so I have VDR running until 10.04 settles out.
