Hmm, that's almost a tollerable price. :) Thanks for mentioning it.

Rumour has it (from other people with the Sky set top box), it's diag
only, no channel changing. However, if you're using Sky Digital, it's
DVB-S, so maybe a DVB-S card with a CA module would suffice? (And, you get
MPEG-2 without any re-encoding :) )

You might find this useful as well then:


It's an XSLT stylesheet to convert Sky's listings to XMLTV format. Feed it
to your favourite XSLT handler (eg, about 5 lnes of perl), and you're set.
I'm working on some shell scripts to fetch it + the TVNZ listings XML feed
(really ugly, and looks unofficial, but it's got to be nicer than parsing
the HTML from the normal nzoom pages..)

I'm 99% sure the XMLTV output is correct for both, but I had real problems
with tv_sort expecting them to have tags in a particullar order (!).
