Journal Journal: MythTV PVR for Sky Digital subscribers in the UK.

So, I have decided to work on a mini-Howto for getting mythtv working with Sky Digital here in the U.K.

The first thing to note, is that all of the required stuff for making this work is out there in the wild already, so I am not going to re-invent the wheel and I will link to external information sources whenever possible. I will also make sure that I get a copy of all the information just in case it trys to disappear from the current sources.

This will not be a "from scratch" home brew PVR howto, that has been covered plenty of times elsewhere, including here on slashdot, so I will focus on the additional items needed for decent (but not perfect) Sky Digital integration.

I will post info here as soon as material is ready.
