The SVN version lets you query info about a program by specifying
the chanid and starttime. You can do this for the chanid/starttime
you get back from the "query location" command or for any recording
in the 'recorded' table.
I've thought of adding ways to view the guide and schedule recordings
but haven't got around to it yet. It's a few items down my TODO list
behind other stuff. I think that with the perl bindings being
worked on that this feature in the Network Control interface may not
be necessary either you may be able to easily get the info from
there via a simple perl script.
