While there is no official documentation on the server protocols, there 
is a partial, user-maintained set at:


In addition to the official libraries, MythTV ships with three 
additional implementations in the perl bindings, python bindings, and 
mythweb.  The above link also references three other implementations 
with libcmyth, GMyth, and MythtvJ.  If you need more information than 
the server protocol provides, try using the XML server, before resorting 
to access the database.  It is intended for use by UPnP clients and a 
reference is available by installing MythXMLTest to your local webserver.
