Cool. I thought it was odd that MythTV hadn't repliacated this.

Another thing, does Myth have any awareness of what broacasts are
either unedited or commercial free? It would be nice to prioritize
movies based on what's not been edited.

Another thing would be tracking of personal viewing habits and
deprioritizing shows that have been recently viewed or viewed
and not completed or shows that were recorded and expired without
ever having been viewed.

It also looks like there's a blacklist too.

There's some things you just don't want wasting precious space
on your PVR despite of whatever rules you have in place. Tivo
has this annoying habit of still recording stuff even when it's
got 3 thumbs down.
