This is great news! I've been using MythTV for years now, first with
some PVR150 cards and Shaw SD, then more recently an IPTV tuner on
Sasktel. This latest Sasktel "update" has forced me to consider other
options, although our HD feeds continue to work on IPTV, the SD ones
have stopped.... alas, the end is near.

The HDPVR seemed like the best option, but I was wary to fork out $200
without at least one other Sasktel person reporting some kind of
success. Thanks to both of you for doing more than that and reporting
complete success, awesome!

Now to convince the wife we need one. (This shouldn't be too hard a
sell, she greatly prefers MythTV to both the Sasktel and Shaw PVR's
and she is a professional user interface designer. Good work
