Mythrecmaze -- Automatically record the TV shows you follow on TVmaze.com using MythTV

http://github.com/heyted/mythrecmaze

Instead of setting a recording using MythTV, follow your shows on tvmaze.com to have them recorded. The program checks the TVmaze ical feed for the next seven days. It then downloads guide data for the current day each time it is run and the next six days only if there is a change in the ical feed for those days and sets the applicable recordings. The program currently works in the USA only, but this could easily be changed. I have tested the latest version using Mythbuntu 16.04 with MythTV 0.28.

Post one was edited to remove the requirement for changing the MythTV xmltvid values. With the latest version, changing the MythTV xmltvid values is optional.

I added logging and a simple GUI. I also improved the installation instructions.
