Do you seriously think that these 'peers' are just going to happily give their source code to anyone who wants it or even let them 'copy' what they have done? Just not how the real world works.

Design problems, not code. I've seen nothing from SD to think they aren't good, or great developers, just questionable UX designers.

[edit for a poor design choice example] Look at their choice in the original color scheme, they thought it was good, or they wouldn't have used it. They got something that simple wrong from the very start. Poor choices just continued from there.

Happy Easter!

Now that the high-priority work around the ATSC 3.0 tuner seems to be complete, any news on the HDHR DVR front?
