What Daniel said about combining the onairguide (for the next few 
programs / days) and xmltv data (more days ahead) sounds realy good. Ans 
both field are needed for that. :-)

Now it's just waiting for Levent to see where he gets changing the dbox 
recorder over to using an udp based transfer protocol. This would make 
the dbox a usable recording source for me. For now only the real low 
bitrate channels are usable. Anything over 5mbit gives me quircks in the 
recordings (with a 10 mbit half duplex dbox2). Using the udrec way of 
recording (more info http://www.haraldmaiss.de/ , he even has a c++ 
linux client) I can get up to 8500 kbit recordings without a problem. So 
that would be realy nice to have.
