That sounds like a very neat idea, one that I would probably use if it was
made. It would be a bit of work, especially number 6. Sounds cool. I am
watching this thread =)

Subject: [mythtv] Future Development
This is a general question about the future development for MythTV.
( Before I get into the guts of my email - The people who contributed to
this project have done an excellent job! )
Anywho, I have a question regarding the future development direction on user
accounts. I haven't had time to search the email/news archives so forgive
me if this topic is being reproduced. With my life setting back into a
groove, which is providing me, some time to develop code at home. I was
curious if anyone has though of developing a user module. My initial
thoughts, this module would provide these functionalities:
1) Individual Viewing Lists Based On Logged In User. ( Wife might have
different tastes and doesn't want to see all those recordings of Dr.
Phil...eerrr..Sci-Fi shows. )
2) Parental Lock Control
3) Channel Filtering Ex. - Some reason you might just like to watch 4
channels, change it so the guide just displays those for channels or be used
to control which channels kids and record.
4) User categories ( Ex. - All new Monday shows, 2003-2004 Season of
5) User recording options/expanded scheduling features - Entire show
season, Entire Collection Simpson Episodes Based on Original Air Date.
6) User Profiling - This part would try and figure out which shows you might
like to watch. Example, 3 AM two movies are about to start, "SpaceBalls"
and"Cyborg". Both are considered Sci-Fi shows. Cyborg is Acton while
SpaceBalls is Comedy. You have watched an equal number of Sci-Fi/Action
Sci-Fi/Comedy shows. However, recently you watched a John Candy movie.
Therefore it will record SpaceBalls as a show you might enjoy to watch.
Granted this module part will be the most difficult and most fun to write.
Additionally for those Big Brother types, provide an option to flick this
option on or off.
Thanks for reading my babble of thoughts,
