I guess we’re at a different phase of the Zap2IT guide data thing now. The story has broken, there’s been tons of email on the mythtv-users mailing list (remember, don’t panic!), and now things have quietened down. I think that’s probably a good thing, because it almost certainly means people are now no longer distracted from actually sitting down and working on the problem.
I imagine that journalists would make up some sensational thing to say to keep the story rolling during this quiet news cycle. I can’t think of any such thing to say, and it wouldn’t be ethical anyway.
