Shepherd and icetv are the two big ones for mythtv users.
IceTV is neat, but too expensive.  They're more than Tivo was when I
was in the US, but offer worse data quality.

Shepherd is a constantly moving target.  It's an excellent piece of
software, but
has lots of dependancies and moving parts.  It's also got data quality
issues in that it does the best with the info it has, but that info is not
good to begin with.

Were schedules direct available in AU for $50 AU a year or less, with the
data quality of the US version, I'd be on it in a minute.
