Might come in handy if I ever change pay TV provider in the US… DirecTV set top boxes are controllable via USB.
The n800 seems to be spontaneously rebooting, which is very annoying. It’s also at the same time going through a lot more battery life when idle than I would expect. Does anyone know of a good tool for tracking down what the device thinks is happening (I don’t have R&D mode installed on the machine).
$ ./mythnettv --statistics Programs tracked: 385 Google EngEdu: 279 Scoble Show: 26 linux.conf.au 2007: 74 Programs still to download: 283 Google EngEdu: 202 Scoble Show: 8 linux.conf.au 2007: 73 Data transferred: 22 gb
This is why I want to queue video, and then have it download to Myth a little at a time.
Beta 3 is out! It includes:
- Renamed to mythnettv
- todoremote bug fixed (bad column name)
- statistics bug fixed (no transfer stats caused crash)
- It is now possible to do a –todoremote, –importremote, or –importlocal and provide all the needed information on the command line
Get it from here.
I’m going to be renaming MythIpTv to MythNetTv to avoid a flame war on the MythTV user’s mailing list.
Just announced. It was either do the washing, or this:

To: Discussion about mythtv Subject: MythIPTV Beta 2 Hi again. There's a new version of MythIPTV now at http://www.stillhq.com/mythtv/mythiptv/source/beta-2/ This version adds the following: - subscription management: you can add RSS URLs to watch, list them, update them (download new versions of the XML and import the shows), and remove them - ad hoc video management: add a remote URL to the TODO list, download a remote URL and import it now, import a local file - transcoding: it's quite probable that you'll encounter a video format which isn't know. Please report it if you do - statistics: how many programs do I have? how many are waiting to download? how much data have I downloaded so far? - reporting: what shows would be downloaded next? what does the internal log say about the state of MythIPTV? Once again, this is a beta, so good backups are needed. I would love more feedback. Oh, and you _really_ need mplayer and mencoder installed now. Really. Cheers, Mikal
