Yes, it's different in Greece, too, we have 5 categories
1: For everyone
2: Parental guidance recommended
3: PG required
4: Over 15
5: Over 18.

I would "squeeze" 5 to 4 by eliminating "2", but I was worried only whether the "PG" and the other symbols were the ones MythTV was looking for when it was searching for metadata.
I.e. if I translate "PG" to something Greek I would break the ratings system. So, my question is more of a programmatical type.

That would be great, I hope you find the time.
