It works very well for me. I changed the script so that it runs on all
channels, not only the white listed ones. If there is really a show
which doesn't get marked properly, I still press the forward button a
few times as I did before, but most of the times it works.

The mythcommflag which comes with MythTV takes much longer and basically
doesn't work at all in the UK.
