Is this happening with the example as you show it, or are you trying to 
print mydata?

There is a bug in the print method for TSdata objects, which I have 
fixed and was intending to put on CRAN in a few days. This bug does give 
the infinite recursion error, but would only happen when you print the 
data by typing


I don't think the assignment you show would produce this problem, but 
please send me more details if it does. The problem, which will be fixed 
in the next release, is only with the print method. Other things are 
working and you should be able to do model estimation, conversion, and 
plot the data, just not print it.
