    Hi again.
    MythNetTv is my video downloader / aggregator / importer thingie for MythTV.
    I've spent a little longer testing this beta, and I think it's getting
    kinda ready for a real release number or something. New things in this
    version (from the change log):
      - Made --update more terse
      - Made --update more liberal about what it considers to be a video,
        specifically added video/quick time and text/html (to work around the
        rather broken
      - Added a filter option to --download to constrain it to only
        downloading shows with a specific title
      - Added transcoding for mov and wmv2 files
      - If there is a straggling import, and it causes as error, just skip
        it and mark it as imported
      - Don't reset transferred data statistic when we start downloading a
        show again
      - Started implementing moniker support for downloads
      - Unsupported monikers will result in an attempt to download the URL
        using mplayer (which works for RTSP and MMS at the least)
    Yes, that's right. You can now download only shows with a specific
    title, and you can also download any protocol which mplayer supports --
    specifically, RTSP and MMS are now supported.
    Now, if only there was a non-sucky way to work out what streams were offering at any given time...
    Get it here if you care:
