When i hear of this, i think why don't we add the stream playing
functionality completely to mythtv.

I think we should add the option to add internet streams as programs, wich
come in the normal programm list. Then ther must be a handler for internet
streams and there had to be a grabber for the program information (I think
the grabber had to be special for every different stream.). 

How do you today play your internet streams?? Xine ?? Mplayer?? We need that
the backend tune to them, and convert the format to the normal format of the
ringbuffer! I think this can be perhaps done by vlc??

Any more thinkings to that point...

Betreff: [mythtv] Internal scheduling

Hi All,

I'm working on a little mythhack that should add  (very) basic pvr 
functionality to record Internet streams using streamripper.  My goal is 
to provide a basic interface interface where somebody can enter urls and 
schedule recordings. Right now, it's a shell script that runs off the 
cron daemon. However, I plan on using perl on the backend. I haven't 
really considered the interface yet. I'm just focusing on getting the 
backend to work.  I understand that myth has a built in scheduler. I had 
a look at the db, however, I think I'm missing the large picture. Can 
the Internal scheduler be used for anything? How is the scheduling 
handled? Am I better off to just stick with cron?
