Hi Hika & Andrew,
thanks for your suggestions and methods.
What i would like to have is the interactive part. So i'm not at home
and I see that tonight is a special showing, or football match, or
whatever, and I would like to schedule the recording.
What I do now is mail myself with a Mythtv subject and in the body
write what I want to record, hoping that I get home in time to schedule it.
