SageTV web interface

I'd noticed the web interface to SageTV awhile ago but didn't have the time to mess with it. Decided to poke at it for an hour or so. It actually took all of five minutes to install. It would have taken less time but I had to figure out where it needed to be installed as all of the directions talked about relative paths.

In any case, I now have a very nice web front-end to SageTV with an especially nice (customizeable) show schedule interface.

Notes and screenshots here.

Next up, I want to play with SlimServer. For some reason they say that it doesn't work with the MediaMVP interface for SageTV, but it's supposed to work with the MVPMC firmware. I have hopes. Mebbe I'll have to come up with a way to select which firmware the MVP loads.

I'm off to start dropping hints that I really want a Squeezebox and/or another MediaMVP. The Transporter is definitely a bit out of my budget at $2K.
