MythTV Update

Ok, here are some helpful tips for using mythbuntu in Germany:

The built-in search for theaters/movies near you only works for the states. Anyone else on the world will want to download this script and fetch the information via Google (change the Google domain to something local to you in the source code)

If you want to get your EPG data via the Internet, have a look at this howto. It fetches the data very quickly compared to the usual parsing scripts of xmltv. I fill the EPG database via a cronjob as soon as there are less than 4 days of data for any channel. For anyone interested, here is the SQL to get the next date/time of “missing” data.
“SELECT MAX(starttime) AS time FROM program GROUP BY chanid ORDER BY time ASC LIMIT 1”

Anyone with a Marvell Libertas 8335 chipset wifi card is going to need the package ndiswarapper, and the windows 2000 drivers from here
