I'd really rather this were kept in a separate program, not in the mythtv
source. Any reason you're not using something like the dct-channel stuff in
the contrib directory?
I also don't really like putting the wait logic into tv_rec -- a separate
function in the Channel object should handle that. Don't need the
environment variable to store the pid, either.
