Big problems for home brew PVR's on the horizon

Zap2it, a provider of the tv guide data for most home made PVR's out there like mythtv or mediaportal will stop offering data as of September 1 2007. This is because of business changes and they claim "unauthorized use". Honestly this will be a big blow to the home made PVR market as well as some of the commercial ones as they rely on that data as well.

if it means I'm back to scheduled recordings instead of guide set recordings then so be it, but I hope that the xmltv guys find a work around or some other solution. I cant believethere is not a company out there selling a xml feed of this data for $5.00 a month.
