Are we really going to go through this again? There is already  
software that does this. It is not MythTV since it violates the  
vision for what MythTV is and should continue to be. There is the  
option of launching external software to do this. It doesn't make  
sense for developers to waste time on a feature that other easily- 
integrated software does very well. If you can't get that other  
software to work, you should ask on their mailing lists how to get it  
to work.
