A somewhat belated announcement of 0.6.2, no new features (which is why
it is belated), just a minor fix to show the program channel for

As usual, find it at:

What is mythtv-status?

The other day I was recompiling some kernels during the day on our
MythTV backend, which at the time happened to be recording my wifes
favourite program (Grey's Anatomy, we discovered it part way through the
season, so the repeats are good).  It turns out the compiling caused
some issues with the recording (which reduced the WAF). 

So to increase the WAF, I'm making sure this doesn't happen again.  I've
written a script that spits out the MythTV status which is then
displayed in the MOTD.

I've found this is a pretty effective way of letting me know of any
upcoming recordings and what is going to be happening on the system in
the next little while.  It is a whole lot easier than using the status
page on MythWeb.
