furious_tv is a set of tools to take XMLTV TV listings and enable a UNIX system to automatically record programs off of a TV card. It is written in C and uses a SAX parser for maximum speed and efficiency.

Development: furious_tv Project

furious_tv was just approved as a SourceForge project and I'm working on getting the web site up and running! Currently, the source code should be able to be obtained through CVS.

The status of this project is that the XMLTV listings to SQLite database program is all set up and working. All that is left to do before a release is write the program that probes the database for programs to record and starts recording them.

I have an update on the speed of furious_tv vs. WVCR. I ran the WVCR parser on almost 5MB of XMLTV listings and it took over 19 minutes to run on my 850 MHz box. I then turned around and ran the furious_tv parser on the same listings and it took 15.51 seconds (according to time(1)).
