I have almost completely replaced the standard tv interface with this mod. The one feature that I still need is the ability to create custom recordings either by keyword or by channel/time. For that the only way I can figure how to do it is from the default tv recording screen. If there would be a shortcut added to get to this schedule recording screen I can finally eliminate the default tv screen from my setup. Thanks for your consideration.
I also want this feature. However after looking at the way MCE does it I think the initial version should have some added controls.
For instance, if I use their keyword search for "Fringe", it of course wont find what I am after but will instead find a bunch of junk not related.
I want this feature bad enough to offer help adding it. I have experience programming in this kind of feature. I worked on an old product called AccessDTV where I added the program guide, arranged contracts for data, wrote the import programs, search, and on screen display features. Let me know if I can help with this.
I went ahead and started on a search app. So far it is successfully searching shows and saving and loading search criteria. Next I need to add in the recording settings (like new/rerun, HD and such) and create the scheduled task part that does the auto scheduling.
