So, If I understand you right, anything that dwells on my drive (presumably
in some user specified directory) gets its database name, episode, etc. etc.
uploaded to this DB in the sky, and counts as a "vote" for that program?

Q1: Are we measuring quality or taste?   
Q2: Does it matter?
Q3: would this include only TV recordings or also any ripped dvds and home
      movies that people happen to have?
