Simon--that is a good idea, and you're on to something with the W/SAF
pitch..otherwise I can see how fringe TV zealots like ourselves would
be dismissed out of hand.  I think I'll do what you suggest.  I may
casually forget to mention my MythTV setup and mention instead (like
you said) the obsolescence of the QAM tuner in my Panasonic plasma
that I just bought in January.  :-P
