I am sorry but don't agree with that - I have been using Myth for 12 odd
years. When Comcast/Xfinity started encrypting TV channels, I stopped the
TV recording on my end. However, I love Myth platform and even though there
may be million other offerings that can do something better, I prefer
keeping my bond with Myth.

Appreciate the input, though.
