Rather than re-inventing a standard schema for importing and  
exporting this data, I suggest using XMLTV's well-established schema.  
That means getting all the data into XMLTV format. That means the  
XMLTV people would be the most reliable source of information on  
doing this.

Well, you're wrong. I'm not stopping the discussion. I'm trying to  
get more people involved to get some better brains on it. Why do you  
think that me inviting more people into it is me trying to stop it?

Sorry, where did someone say "shut up and go away"? I'm not a  
psychiatrist, but it sounds like you're delusional. Paranoid, at least.
