Mythtv popularity will gain one or two decimal points the day myth sets 
itself apart from all the rest by letting 'off the shelf' 'smart TV's', 
pods, pads and phones dlna gizmos gain access to at least some of the 
most popular current 'mythfrontend only' playback features, in fact I 
think 80% of it is accomplished when cutlists and commercial skip lists 
are honored.

Sometimes I wish the commercials weren't cut but just all shifted until 
after the show.
