Now, about the video backlog

    $ ./mythnettv --statistics
    Programs tracked: 385
      Google EngEdu: 279
      Scoble Show: 26 2007: 74
    Programs still to download: 283
      Google EngEdu: 202
      Scoble Show: 8 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.

    Hi again.
    There's a new version of MythIPTV now at
    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.
