no the tv guide is XMLtv which is a very very cool app that includes a
backend app that grabs tv listings for mostly every input source from the
US, UK, Canada, Germany, and Austria. It also grab images and content about
the show if available. It's very very cool. A frontend can then fill a
database of choice (our case is mysql).

    I was just strolling about on Freshmeat tonight when I found this
project.  I don't really need a set-top-box; I won't be getting any
traditional cable TV where I'm going. (See http://www.CounterMoon.com)

    But at some point the project and mine will cover a lot of mututal
territory.  I intend to use IRMan (with IrManager) to control the
TV/VCR/DVD/Satellite, using an OnScreen Display, and also control various
fans and check temperatures, etc from the same machine.

    I'm having some trouble visualizing the whole thing.   Maybe my
attempts to help with your project will help.

    The "Tv Guide" function...does it only work in UK?  I'm gonna be
travelling, but not that far.  :)
