In the past 2 years quiet a few people have found my information online to connect your Linux PC and MythTV to the IPTV network to a fiber of an ISP using the glashart media IPTV services. My MythTV setup is recording from the IPTV network for almost 2 years now. Mythtv needs good TV Guide information to be able to record everything with a nice name and keep your recording rules very easy. I’ve used the tv_grab_nl_py script for that a long time. But in the mean time, I also looked at the way the Amino STB is getting its tv guide data. When I looked at it a few months ago, I noticed that the STB is receiving the tv guide data in a very easy json format. So in the last months I wrote my own php script, which retrieves the tv guide data and creates a xmltv compatible xml file which an be used by mythfilldatabase to update the tv guide data in mythtv. Last week changed the layout of their site, which crippled the tv_grab_nl_py script and the author needs to make huge updates in his script. To supply an alternative tv guide source for users who already have connected their mythtv to the glashart media services, I released my script as open source on Google code.
