Heh, sorry 'bout that.. Hadn't even considered someone running it on another
box. =) I'll put fixing that on my todo list.. Need a better config system,

Great. Well, perl 5.8 should make debian eventually, and then I'll have to
deal with it and xmltv, and I had enough trouble getting it working as it
was.. What parts of my code didn't qt3-cvs like?

It _should_ stop right at 9 pm. No 'Changing from RecordingOnly to None' or
similar in the console output? Hrm. I've had a problem or two with that
portion of the code before (it's translating a QDateTime object from the
scheduler in the Qt section, to a struct tm and then to a time_t). Probably
just be cleaner if I changed the whole thing to use the Qt stuff. Could you
let me know if it happens again? I might ask you to put in a debugging line

Thanks for the feedback =)
