The SwapDV application allows you to manage your own digital video library, based on content backed up from from your replay TV. It combines the functionality of a replay client (Yet Another Replay Client), a replay server (Yet Another Replay Server) and a replay guide editor :)
The application is for all platforms.
A small feature list:
* connect to a replay TV and browse its contents
* download mpegs (raw/modified)
* save and edit guides (raw/header stripped)
* import digital video into your local server, either from your replay TV or from your disk
* edit, add, remove shows and channels
* emulate a replayTV box on your local network
* "real" replay TVs can play back videos from your server
SwapDV 0.5 and source code released. Go to http://swapdv.sourceforge.net to download the new version and/or sources
ReplayTV doesn't subscribe to the Canadian TV listings (even though their supplier, Tribune, does have them available. But if I could somehow reassign the Buffalo or Niagara Falls cable stations to the channels they are received on for the Toronto cable system, I'd have all but a few stray channels accessible with up-to-date program guides! So what I'm hoping to be able to do is regularly download a neighbor-town's listings, edit the guide to reassign the channel numbers as they occur locally in Canada, and then send the edited guide back to the ReplayTV. Would I be able to use SwapDV to do that? I know it's not your primary goal, but if it works as a side effect you can make many people happy!
