With the NFL season just around the corner, I've finished adding NFL  
support to the Myth Recording Extender script.

The latest version can be downloaded from the project web site at:


What is MRE?  MRE is a PHP5 application that will monitor (certain)  
active recordings and automatically extend the length of the recording  
if the monitor detects that the event is running beyond the scheduled  
time in the tv listings.  MRE will continually extend such recordings  
until the monitor detects the event is over, at which time it will  
stop the recording.  MRE was written with live sports in mind and  
currently supports monitoring of the following events:

* NFL football
* MLB baseball
* NHL hockey
* NBA basketball

Just because your listings provider says the game is over after three  
hours doesn't mean you have to miss extra innings or overtime.  With  
MythTV and MRE you can record the entire game no matter how long it  

Please see the readme file for all system requirements to run MRE.   
Feedback welcomed.
