Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've written a really short and sweet script that oes the following:
1) downloads tv listings for that day (can easily be extended)
2) reads your xawtv config to find the frequencies (NB. Channel names must match exactly)
3) let's you choose a program
4) set's mencoder to record it when it starts via the at server
only currently works for UK tv, though it would be simple enough to add certain other countries, if you can find a tv listings site what will provide that information in XML. There's one in Germany that can be used, but the one for America (found via XMLTV) doesn't seem to work (anymore?)
Hi! Have either of you taken a look at MythTV?! It rules!
What is wrong with your tv tuner card? I have a Studio PC, which worked fine under a 2.2 kernel. When I upgraded to 2.4, I have to pass along what tuner I had to the module in order to get it to work. This maybe the same issue you are having.... Take a look at the docs in:
yeah i saw mthtv, wasn't impressed. there' no need to be so OTT with that sort of thing. it's good if you want that. benefit of my tiiny script is that it uses mencoder, which is SUCH a good divx4 encoder, which also uses a LOT less system resources, due to it's optimization.
My tv card never worked very well, when it was working well it I would have to wait until my computer had been on for 5 minutes or so before using the TV tuner. If I started it before that time then in Linux it would lock up my Linux box, in Windows it would not tune until I restarted my computer. If I waited 5 minutes first then everything would be okay. Now it has the same symptoms, which it used to have in the 5 minutes, all the time (under both Linux and Windows).
Edit /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/XMLTV/ZapListings.pm (or wherever ZapListings.pm is located) change tvlistings2.zap2it.com to tvlistings.zap2it.com you should find 3 entries. I believe the latest XMLTV fixs this problem.
cesman's reply reminded me that I also had to muck with the URL. Although I didn't have to change the name of the server, I did have to change the page title. On line 74 of ZapListings.pm, I changed register.asp to index.asp.
