This tool extracts the program guides from the OzTivo servers and creates an XMLTV file for the EyeTV PVR.
I have a Mac Mini with EyeTV set up as as home media centre. I wrote this Java application to download the program guides from the OzTivo site, mainly to get data for Nine and Go! which do not transmit a DVB program guide.
<rant>How are we suppose to watch their shows/ads if we do not know what is on?</rant>
This is the first version for this tool and I have not completed all of the features. I have developed this tool for Mac OS X, but it will work with Windows and Linux. Please let me know of your experiences with this tool so that I can improve it.
