I am sure we are not that important to rogers.

On the other hand freeing up bandwidth from the analog channels for more
channels and more cable modem bandwidth is useful to rogers.

Now if they can get more people to buy their pvr to replace a VCR,
I am sure rogers doesn't mind that.

I suspect for most people of course, spending $500 on the rogers pvr that
has 8 tuners and 1TB storage, or spending $300 on the HD box + $300 on
the HDPVR to get one tuner to work with your mythtv box, well I just
think most people go with the rogers box option.  Not me, but most people.
I don't think mythtv users were ever much of a concern to rogers.
