And they may be one of the people who spends a great deal of their time 
writing and debugging drivers for capture cards (and possibly other 
hardware) as well as supporting users of those capture cards, and they 
may have already wasted a huge amount of time before the three posts in 
this thread trying to debug issues for other users that ended up being 
caused by running with the same unsupported configuration, so that the 
addition of this smaller amount of time to the already-expended time is 
truly a colossal amount of time.

Besides, how can any of us know how much time Devin spent looking at 
archives of information and code to prepare responses before each of 
those 3 posts?  It's possible he spent hours of his time doing thorough 
research in an attempt to provide quality support at no cost to you (in 
spite of having no responsibility to provide any support at all).  I can 
guarantee that some of the people spend a /lot/ of time preparing 
responses to posts/providing support on this list (and others related to 
MythTV or software/drivers used by MythTV).
