Cool, my idea was basically to tackle this from the opposite end as you.
Get the recommendations working well, and people using it, then add an
_optional_ flag to submit "extended" data (oldrecordings and such) to
gather further statistics to aid the recommendations, and just for the
"Cool Factor" as well maybe.
Would be interesting to see how many hours of recordings, and which
programs/categories MythTV users in general prefer.
Perhaps we should combine our efforts?
