it's not a recording problem i have, i realise i can setup mythtv to have a
capture source of whatever port i want on the mce150, it's the integration
with sky that i'm concerned about (i.e. the guide). i'd like to be able to
replicate the sky epg (in the way that media centre does), but it seems an
xmltv config is not available for sky ireland, which is significantly
different from sky UK.
it's the ease of recording something in the same way as media centre that
i'm after... i must say, apart from the crappy OS in the background, M$ did
a very good job tying in all the interface of MCE with the guide and all
