ETV Personal Video Recorder

ETV is a personal video recorder (PVR) especially suited for European use. It can schedule by hand or according to rules based on XMLTV. It can also time-shift. The recorder runs on Linux, and the scheduler and frontend on either Linux or Windows. Its GUI is designed to be used with a remote on a TV screen.

    Release Notes: Unicode support was added for program information, on-screen text, and user input. Diskspace is monitored, and wipeable recordings are freed if needed. Lots of tiny user-interface improvements were implemented. A local copy of the SDL library can now be used, meaning that the SDL-patches needed by ETV don't have to affect your global library anymore.
