I'm happy to announce the of R5F27. R5F27 includes the latest 
MythTV-fixes which is need for Schedule Direct, in addition to several 
other improves you've come to expect from KnoppMyth:

Latest DVB, Ivtv and V4L2 modules. If you have a newer DVB card, all you 
may need is the latest firmware.

Updated rrd_MBfan.pl to match modern configuration conventions.
Updated rrd_MBtemp.pl to ignore impossible readings.
Updated rrd_UPS.pl to support APC UPS with USB connection.
Updated rrd.config to support new rrd_UPS.pl

Added setup_apcupsd.sh - Detect an APC UPS (USB only) and configure the 
daemon appropriately. This allows it to work with the new rrd_UPS.pl 
monitoring script.

/usr/local/bin/vfd_install.sh - Detects and configures an iMON VFD (not 
the LCD).
