New MythTV Programming Guide Service

PVRBlog is reporting that there will be a new programming guide service available to MythTV called LXM Suite. Users will be charged a small monthly fee (6 months for $30 during their trial period), but hopefully the coverage and reliability will improve.

This is a good thing for MythTV that has previously relied on Zap2it data for non-commericial use only. Hopefully this will pave the way for other micro-providers to develop for the platform. Once MythTV is successfully installed, it's a pretty competitive DVR product, and LXM Suite may make it even better.

i heard that it would be 45 bucks a 1/2 year (90 bucks a year, it's less than Tivo but will it work as well? (for people who complain about monthly fees).

Disclaimer: I'm running Media Portal from time to time but have 2 Tivos that I purchased the lifetime for, much less painful in the long run...


Also this makes snapstream slightly more interesting since they include the guide with the software (currently, whether or not they can keep that up will be interesting).
