I've had a lot of problems with NFS corrupting stuff on my network with
no indication in syslog regarding the cause. Since then I have always
added the CRC to anything I've ripped with myth or other tools. I do own
a ton of media. Getting off-topic here. Even ripping discs is a grey
area, so I must say I'm really surprised to see that kind of reaction,
and it calls in the question of mythvideo's existence itself with it's
ripping feature. I tried to report a possible bug and get lambasted for
it. I actually regret reporting anything here now, and won't bother to
do so in the future.

I agree that those comments were unneeded.

I'll fix it myself and apply a patch locally on my machine, or find
something else more suitable to the task. I won't bother submitting a
patch though. I don't feel like getting nailed to the wall for my
efforts via reporting or through patch submission.

I didn't intend to cause a war. I'll unsubscribe from the list promptly.
