OK, now I'm REALLY confused! I thought that MythTV could change the
channel for me...is this not the case?! What's the use of having XMLTV if
it's just for a guide? I can look up all the guide info on Yahoo, and
figure out what I want to tape (like what I'm doing with my VHS). If it
doesn't change the channel, then vacation recording is impossible. Does
this set-up just not work with digital cable? My other option is to spend
$50 to get DishNetwork, then an extra $50 for their Tivo-type PVR.
So, I guess I go back to my old question.... I currently have digital
cable here in America. Is MythTV just a pipedream for me?
Confused as hell!
