It explains how to set up your Tivo if you're out of the US (because they
don't provide program data for Canada) with both Windows and Linux
instructions. The main thing is getting XMLTV set up on there. That's the
same program the MythTV project uses for their TV listings (and I assume
others do too). I don't have a Tivo, so I can't help beyond that, but I
assume this is for series 1 units only...
