Tony, I'd like to encourage you to discuss boxstar on the new forum I
have created in a way that clarifies what the current limitations of VDR
are for you or others. If boxstar solves problems that VDR users have in
the UK, we can't afford to ignore boxstar. But I don't see the new forum
as a place where boxstar users may ask for support for their boxstar
Of course, limitations or advantages of MythTV for UK users would also
be a possible topic within the new forum, but they should always be put
into a relation with VDR. The goal is to look for ways to improve VDR.
Just my 2 cents... ;-)
