Managing TV with XMLTV
The open source software XMLTV recently made my life much easier, even though I don't use MythTV. I have a DVD recorder with a hard drive for recording television shows (a Philips HDRW 720/17, if you are really curious). It has a built-in TV guide listing service, but I quickly became disappointed with the amount of detail in the listings. I tried using my newspaper's TV listings but those, too, did not have the level of detail that I wanted.
