MythTV TV Schedules Will Cost You

Easy TV Data To Rescue MythTV

Last month Zap2It Labs announced that it would be discontinuing its free TV listings service through XML, which MythTV users inside of the United States depend upon for listing data. However, there is now hope that there will be a viable replacement by the time Zap2It eliminates their service in September of this year. Announced on the MythTV development list was word that representatives from a number of free software projects are working on the replacement. Specific details are still being kept secret, but Easy TV Data is being setup as a non-profit organization to provide free TV listings. More information should be available shortly.

MythTV + Fedora = MythDora

This Linux distribution is relatively unheard of, in fact we hadn't even heard of it until the announcement came down early this morning on the Fedora marketing list. MythDora, as the name implies, is a combination of the MythTV project and Fedora Core. Presently, MythDora is based upon Fedora Core 4 and ships with MythTV-0.19. Several MythTV modules are also included. Beta test 2.22 is available at this time, however, MythDora v2.1 is stable at this time. More information on MythDora is likely to come in the near future, and the project's home-page is here.
