The video signal quality has improved a lot in the recent years with DTH
operators and cable TV set top boxes. However, most set top boxes are pretty
I am hoping to connect my local cablewallahs set top box to a myth box with a
TV tuner card via composite. One of the biggest hindrances is the availability
of the electronic program guide (EPG). In the UK people can grab EPG using
xmltv from the radiotimes website whereas in the US it is possible to do that
via schedulesdirect website. Unfortunately, there is no provider for Indian TV
which distributes EPG in xmltv format. There is a startup called zipazap.com,
but they dont distribute the EPG.
Running myth without an EPG doesnt have much of a point since the primary goal
is to record TV when i am not in front of the TV. Is anybody aware of any EPG
source for indian televison?
