Manual usage

 url <url> <title> : to download an RSS feed and load the shows
                         from it into the TODO list. The title is
                         as the show title in the MythTV user
                         interface
 file <url> <title>: to do the same, but from a file, with a show
                     title like url above
 download <num>    : to download that number of shows from the
                     TODO list. We download some of the oldest
                     first, and then grab some of the newest as
                     well.
 download <num> <title filter>
                   : the same as above, but filter to only 
                     download shows with a title exactly 
                     matching the specified filter
 download <num> <title filter> <subtitle filter>
                   : the same as above, but with a regexp title
                     filter as well
 download <num> <title filter> <subtitle filter> justone
                   : the same as above, but download just one
                     and then mark all other matches as read
 cleartodo         : permanently remove all items from the TODO
                     list
 markread <num>    : interactively mark some of the oldest <num>
                     shows as already downloaded and imported
 markread <num> <title filter>
                   : the same as above, but filter to only mark
                     shows with a title exactly matching the
                     specified filter
 markread <num> <title filter> <subtitle filter>
                   : the same as above, but with a regexp title
                     filter as well
 markunread <num>  : interactively mark some of the youngest <num>
                     shows as not already downloaded and imported
 resetattempts     : interactively reset the number of attempts
                     for matching programs to zero. This will
                     cause previously failed programs to be
                     retried
 resetattempts <title filter>
                   : as above, but only for shows with this title
 unfail            : interactively scan through list of failed downloads
                     asking the user if they should be tried again
 unfail <title filter>
                   : as above, but only for shows which match the title filter

Handy stuff

 todoremote        : add a remote URL to the TODO list. This will
                     prompt for needed information about the
                     video, and set the date of the program to
                     now
 todoremote <url> <title> <subtitle> <description>
                   : the same as above, but don't prompt for
                     anything
 importremote      : download and immediately import the named
                     URL. Will prompt for needed information
 importremote <url> <title> <subtitle> <description>
                   : the same as above, but don't prompt for
                     anything
 importtorrent <url> <title> <subtitle> <description>
                   : the same as above, but force the URL to be
                     treated as a torrent. This is useful when
                     MythNetTV doesn't automatically detect
                     that the URL is to a torrent file.
 importlocal <file>: import the named file, using the title, 
                     subtitle and description from the command
                     line. The file will be left on disk.
 importlocal <file>: import the named file. The file will be
                     left on disk. Will prompt for needed
                     information
 importmanylocal <path> <regexp> <title>:
                     import all the files from path matching
                     regexp. title is use as the title for the
                     program, and the filename is used as the
                     subtitle

Subscription management

 subscribe <url> <title>
                   : subscribe to a URL, and specify the show 
                     title
 list              : list subscriptions
 unsubscribe <url> <title>

 : unsubscribe from a feed, and remove feed programs from TODO list

 update            : add new programs from subscribed URLs to the
                     TODO list
 update <title>    : as above, but just for this program

(things you can do to subscriptions)

 archive <title> <path>
                   : archive all programs with this title to the
                     specified path. This is useful for shows you
                     download and import, but want to build a
                     non-MythTV archive of as well
 category <title> <category>
                   : set the category for a given program. The
                     category is used for parental filtering  within
                     MythTV.
 group <title> <group>
                   : set the group for a given program. The
                     group is used as a recording group within
                     MythTV.
 http_proxy <url regexp> <proxy>
                   : you can choose to use a HTTP proxy for URL
                     requests matching a given regular expression.
                     Use this command to define such an entry. This
                     might be handy if some of the programs you
                     wish to subscribe to are only accessible over
                     a VPN.
 http_proxy <url regexp> <proxy> <budget mb>
                   : the same a s above, but you can specify the
                     maximum number of megabytes to download via
                     the proxy in a given day. To see proxy usage
                     information, use the proxyusage command.

Reporting

 statistics        : show some simple statistics about MythNetTV
 log               : dump the current internal log entries
 nextdownload <num>
                   : if you executed download <num>, what would
                     be downloaded?

                     the last seven days

Debugging

 videodir          : show where MythNetTV thinks it should be
                     placing video files
 explainvideodir   : verbosely explain why that video directory was
                     selected. This can help debug when the wrong
                     video directory is being used, or no video
                     directory at all is found
