Overview

shalVideo is a TV record sheduling program, the goal is that you can just use your computer just like a video recorder.

The program just gives you the abstraction from other tools you MUST have installed, look at the Requirements for details.

shalVideo reads the channels list from a file that you have to write down, or download if there is one for your place. Right now, thanks to JCamGra, you can create the channels file from xawtv config using the xawitv2svch script

Take a look to channels for details.

Requirements

shalVideo uses the following applications:

Channels

Here are some channels files. Please send me your channel file (rportales at terra dot com) if there is not in the list and I will put it here:

The Channels file is written in XML, and its format is as follows:

<Document>
	<Channel name="" freq="" />
	...
</Document>
Where for each channel we want to be recognized, we have to include a line with the name and frequence of the channel.

If you have xawtv intalled and configured you can use the xawtv2svch script to generate the channel file from the xawtv configuration. Thanks to JCamGra (Jose Antonio Caminero Granja).
