Re: CT TV Listings

I consider any overage that I pay to SD compared to CT to be gladly donated to the OSS movement ;)

Re: SD is in violation of a Microsoft patent...?

At least some of the claims probably have prior art. Things like TOS changes for games like World of Warcraft come to mind (I don't remember now which games ask every time you log in and which ones only ask when something changes, but I think WoW was in the latter category).

I ANAL, however.

Re: RE: Price Lowered and Membership Extended!

Thanks much for passing the savings on to us so quickly. Here's hoping it lasts a long time :)

Re: Privacy policy?

Being the one who started this thread, I guess I feel compelled to say something . Anyway, the privacy policy isn't the best case scenario. However, the biggest thing lacking is some sort of assurance from TMS that they won't use or sell our PII for unwanted marketing. I'd also be happier if our pay...

Re: Big Thanks

Just wanted to say thanks as well. The SD part of the upgrade was the easy part, done in ten minutes or maybe less. The pain came when I tried to upgrade a package-installed MythTV 0.15 on Debian with a non-package 0.20, as somehow 0.20/0.20.2 don't agree with the way I apparently had glx set up. (S...

Privacy policy?

Has there been any progress on the privacy policy? The promise not to sell our info to unrelated third parties is good, but my main concern is whether our personally-identifiable info will be sold/given to TMS or not, and if so, whether they are bound (such as by contract with SD) as to how they're ...

Re: Cost

I laughed until I cried. Which didn't take long.

Seriously, what a crappy arrangement. "Excuse me, would you mind telling us what episode we're running this week? We have no clue."

Re: Gray Areas

I can't find in the service agreement the permission for other members of the household to access the data (the answer to the first question above). That would seem to imply that if you created an account, the rest of your family would be unable to use your PVR (aside from the person for whom you cr...

Re: "Approved" applications?

Thanks much for addressing my concerns. Don't forget, the service agreement is a legal document, whereas the FAQ is not. It would be better to have definitions and restrictions put directly into the service agreement so that everything is watertight (if not airtight, whatever the metaphorical differ...

Re: "Approved" applications?

The service agreement needs to make that clear, then. All it really says is that when you access or use the data, you must use software on the approved software list to do so. Nowhere is "access" or "use" defined, and both of those terms could be taken to have a different (more or less restrictive) ...
