Mythtv is almost compliant, aside from a few areas:
1. Series linking and split events (I have seen people are already
working on this)
2. Recording back to back events should not register a conflict (this
was mentioned ages ago on this list - has it been looked at?)
3. Recording start and stop needs to be controlled by the EITpf. i.e.
start recording when the event to be recorded becomes the EITpf
Present event, and stop when it disappears from the EITpf. Going on
the billed time is not enough, as if a channel is running late the
EITpf update will be delayed by the channel playout automation system.
