Like I said,It wasn't easy,but with no skills in Linux, I made it 
work...I stand by my statement,you were unwilling to put in the time.. 
Not to get in a Pi**ing contest,but Mythtv works fine for most people.. 
I doubt the developers noses are out of joint either,after all they do 
this stuff for their own pleasure,not too please you or me.. There are 
plenty of users in the UK and they seem to be doing OK...
  I have used almost every PVR software on the market,none equals Mythtv....
