MythNetTV release 1

    I figured it was time for another release of MythNetTV, especially since I've fixed some bugs recently and rolled in code generously provided by George Nassas. New things in this release:

    • Initial work on transcoding smaller files to something else
    • Better error checking for MySQL configuration and accessibility
    • Fixed bug where MythNetTV was unhappy if there were no channels configured in the MySQL database
    • Found, and hopefully fixed, a bug where program dates were not always being tracked correctly. Also added a check to make sure this doesn't happen again
    • Added --markread, which lets you mark old shows as already downloaded


    The code has seen a fair bit of use now, so it should be fairly stable. Let me know if you find any problems...
