It seems that somebody has already begun an action on German NMT-forum to
implement 
a PCH UI.

In German 
http://www.hdd-player.de/syabas/showthread.php?tid=5201&pid=71288#pid71288

I've tested that. It brings basic EPG&timer-functionality to PCH with
ability to tune to channel 
via streamdev. So it is a good start. 

But my personal opinion is that why he does a PCH software. It is hard to
install and requires 
resources at PCH as it launches another 'web server'. Why not vdradmin-type
of server to VDR
machine to provide UI 1--N PCH-machines without installations?

There is one bug to report, if EPG is missing, the program does not list the
channel.

But thanks Oli for making such a piece of software. Compared to plain
streamdev this program
enables to see if there is something to worth of watching on HD channels
before tuning to it.

BR,
Jori
