I’ve pushed my beta code for mythRecommend to Github. It’s a system which allows you to subscribe to a source of regular TV recommendations, and have those recommendations automatically get translated into concrete recording schedule for a MythTV system.
Once a recording has been made, the recording schedule is made dormant, so it will not clutter your existing schedule list as time goes on. You can decide if you would like to turn that recommended program into a permanent schedule or not, and reinstate it if desired.
I hope to add more feed parsers as the code matures, but as things stand there is only one written, specifically for The Guardian here in the UK.
