Hello there,

Owner of an HVR4000 and trying to make it work on recent Ubuntu/MythTV. Hopefully will succeed to appy and compile the patch sooner or later.

@John @Gunni

Gunni is probably right about (free) open source developpers doing only what they want to do. Of course, remember they are doing it for free.

Now from a more technical point of view, there may be very good reasons for those people not to simply apply the patch. What if the fix breaks something else? The code change that provoked the issue was certainly written for very good reasons, is it wise to simply cancel it?

Anyway, I hope I will be able to report good news about my HVR4000 soon.
