Ok thanks Thor.

I was at a cablelabs briefing in New York last week and after the
briefing have decided not to pursue a business idea I had.(they are
never going to get their act together)

I will be posting full documentation here with the idea that some of the
development team here pick up some of the concepts and integrate them
into MythTV. (may as well not go to waste).

After viewing some of the advanced concepts that some of the new pvr
software is delivering we need something that will set MythTV out in
front of the pack that is just not available anywhere else.

Hopefully someone will find it of interest.
