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.

Version 1.3 of ftv_gnome adds support for non-US TV listings. Note that ftv_gnome v1.3 requires furious_tv v1.4 to work correctly (see the previous news article for more information on furious_tv v1.4). When the user chooses to load new TV listings, there is an option presented (which is preserved between executions) to override channel numbers or not. If you are using US TV listings, you'll want to check this box, otherwise, it's probably a bad idea. If you need to edit the channel numbers (which is very common with non-US TV listings), just use the "Edit Channels" option from the "Edit" menu.
This version also fixes a few miscellaneous bugs in ftv_gnome, including some really simple crash bugs (e.g. clicking properties with no program selected crashed previous versions).
If you are having any trouble with the non-US listings support in furious_tv or ftv_gnome, please file a bug report so that I can fix the problem. I don't use non-US TV listings, so the code isn't tested very well.
