There certainly are countries in which myth is used quite extensively,
but isn't in that list. I live in New Zealand and maintain the
mythtv-nz mailing list (also archived on gossamerthreads). Myth is
well suited to nz conditions, apart from the demanding h.264/aac-he
that is used on DVB-T.This should be fixed when 0.22 is released, with
the ffmpeg re-sync and the availability of vdpau in -release.

The main bugbear with countries outside North America is the lack of
good listings. We do OK here, thanks to two alternatives: a good
webscraper [1] and also a nice program that massges EIT from DVB-S
[2]. We suffer from TV companies making a hash of their data, but what
they do make available is readily incorporated into myth.
