Well, I for one have been dying to get FTA feeds into my mythbox, since 
there's content on the wild feeds that's simply not available anywhere else.
The big problem I've not been able to solve is the program guide data.  
Myth really needs that to work properly.  To the best of my knowledge, that
data isn't available anywhere.   A potential workaround might be to 
locate individual channels that might be carried by other services, and 
add that channel
data to your scheduler data, then change the database to record using 
the proper source, but it's too kludgy for my tastes.
