Your need to look ahead for new things might be helped by my epgdiff
Python program:


This looks at the EPG in the database and displays any new programmes
it sees that are present in future EPG data but not in the past EPG
data.  It has options to also check if you are already recording a new
programme and to not display that if you are.  If you use its -G (GUI)
option, it will pop up a window with the new listings and you can
select a programme from that window and it will take you to that
programme in mythfrontend so you can read about it and set it to
record if you want to.  When you want to go back to the epgdiff window
from mythfrontend, just do Alt-Tab on the keyboard.

It also has the ability to be run using your IR remote control via
lirc, but there is a lot of setup to make that work, which is
undocumented at present.

If you try it out, please let me know if there are any problems or
feature requests.  And if you would like to try using it with lirc,
please contact me off list and I can let you know how to set it all
