just found out about myth tv today, and had a bear of a time installing

also, just an fyi, mythtv wont compile with qt3-cvs. spent a bit of time
on that one also. also, not sure where exaclty the problem is, but xmltv

just fyi's for a faq or something.

the only pvr i can actually get to work, but mostly because its pretty
One question: say i have a program scheduled to record from 8pm to 9pm.
what time will mythtv stop the recording process? the reason I ask is

thanks for the great work so far,
