Hi again and thanks everybody
firstly sadly VDR does not suit my application as the tuners are in the core and I need to be able to view on two MD's
I am using freesat (for now) as a source.. with a technotrend 1500 ci and as such the EPG is only giving me now and next data via the transmitted guide!
I have tried starting up mythv-configure (if I remember correctly) from the terminal but it opens setup in a GUI and I am unable to get back to the terminal once the mythtv setup starts?
danielk! any chance you could point me at how to setup the XMLTV outside of myth setup as that sounds like the ideal setup!!
I am SOOO jealous of you folks in the USA that can get better than a series one TIVO!
.. I have to be blunt.. if I could get a series 3 or better TIVO in the UK I would be soooo happy lol!
is there a commercial EPG option for MYTH?
yes I know... and I am truly sorry!! I bought a series 1 TIVO when they became available to the UK..
and there is truly NOTHING at ANY price vaguely as good here in the UK (and I think I have tried them all!!)
again thanks everybody for all your help!
