I know, I've been here since the 0.18 days, back when it took a month of tinkering to get anything to work. :-)

Then you and therefore potentially anyone who might answer my question has misunderstood, I'm not looking to modify anything, if I was I'd modify the HDR by replacing it with MythTV!

The sort of reply I was hoping for was "oh yeah we have one in the kids bedroom, it doesn't like myth's recordings try remuxing to mp4/m2ts/avi" sort of thing, bit like the upnp fudging required to get a PS3 to play transport streams, well back when it would play anything much outside of mpeg2.

Thanks for taking the time to look at the spec sheets, I'm sure I'll sort it out in the next few days anyway.
