We are working on ways to improve this. Please revert back to the previous
version for the time being.

The reason for requiring the data is to provide a search function that will
globally search the program guide so that you can manage your recordings
much like you would from mythweb. Just because you may not use this
functionality, does not mean someone else will not. Please keep in mind
this app will be another front end, not just a viewer. Please bare with us
while we work out this loading issue.

Thank you for your continued support.

Dan and the Mythtv for Android team.
