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: Multiple Capture Devices

Last Modified: 2003-08-06T00:18Z

I'm still not sure if anyone will actually want this feature, but after about 2 hours or so of puzzling over how to implement it, preliminary support for multiple capture devices has been implemented in furious_tv.

So if you've got a box will more than one capture card and you don't mess around with recordings while things are taping, it should be possible to tape a couple of shows at the same time.

In some more annoying news, the version of XMLTV I'm running incorrectly grabs stop times. So, at least at the moment, furious_tv replaces whatever stop times XMLTV reports. For the record, this adds virtually nothing to the runtime (yeah, SQLite's that fast).
