Yes, I remember that thread but I forgot that you were in on it; I'm
afraid I thought you were fresh to the MythArchive pastime :-)
I'm still trying to decide what to do with dvb-t2 HD recordings if I
want to keep them - without getting terabytes and keeping them powered
up. Fortunately SD dvb-t still looks pretty good to me and three hours
of that will usually fit onto a DVD with no loss of quality. I thought
I might have problems after the changes in 0.25 but so far I've only
made a few small tweaks to fit in with my personal preferences. The
main box is still 0.24.3 but I'll probably move on quite soon.
