just found out about myth tv today, and had a bear of a time installing 
it.   most of the problems were bad configs on my end though :)  I do have 
one suggestion for the docs (or a compile time config options or 
something).  My mysql server is on a different box.  It took me a few 
hours to figure out that the mysql host was hardcoded in some of the .cpp 
files :)  

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 
doesnt work with perl 5.8.0.   

I know, I know, if I use the latest and greatest, dont expect everything 
to work. The above are not meant to be anything negative about mythtv, 
just fyi's for a faq or something.

now on to the good stuff.  Im really liking it so far.  partly because its 
the only pvr i can actually get to work, but mostly because its pretty 
dang slick.  

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 
because its now 5 min. passed when the show is over and its still going.   

thanks for the great work so far,
