Umm... how do you propose to select the video that you "demand"?  Or, if 
you want Myth to do that, how do you propose to let Myth know what is 
available "On Demand" and how to go about navigating the cable box's 
menus to select it?

So far, the best suggestion I've seen is to manually record it.
