furious_tv is a PVR backend that uses an SQLite database to hold XMLTV listings data. Using that data, it can automatically execute commands to record TV shows off of a capture device (multiple capture devices are supported). If Shuriken is installed, furious_tv can also automatically power the system on/off for recordings to save power.
