Importing downloaded videos as recordings into MythTV

I’ve been playing with downloading videos and treating them as recordings in MythTV because the MythTV player is nicer than Xine, and because it works well as a demo for the tutorial I am working on at the moment. I wont document it here because it’s not quite ready, but it’s actually quite easy and works really well.

For the impatient, a good starting point is this tip is a good starting point, the additional stuff I had to do was around setting up a channel row in the otherwise empty channel table.
