    Red face Can MythTv survive against Google?

    Google just bought SageTV, http://sagetv.com/index.html
    So, just how will this affect MythTV depends on what Google does with it, but given their track record of making things free, if not open source, we will certainly see a drop in new people getting into MythTV. How long can the MythTV community survive without fresh members?

    As long as google fail to live by their motto

    Seriously, how many people do you want knowing every detail of your tv habits?

    How inflexible do you want your system to be?

    There are so many different factors at play, I don't see it having any affect on MythTV at all.

    SageTV has always been viable a alternative and the cost was always low enough not to be major factor in its adoption.

    It will be as it has always been, people will choose based on what is best tool for the job..
