I stumbled along MythTV while getting all my components together for a homebrew 
audio video distribution application using a central Linux server. However, 
using MythTV presently poses one big problem : I live in Belgium : 
unfortunately xml-tv does not support Belgian program guides (looking at the 
possibility of adding the support myself). So in the beginning, it would be 
great to have a feature that enables you to 'manually' record a show ! Would I 
have trouble setting up the database when not using xml-tv, or would I just 
tell to grab UK program guides and not use them ?

Thanks !
