MythTV email next 10 recordings python script sends an email to you with an email showing the next 10 recordings. It only shows what would be recorded like that status window for MythWeb. I use it so I can see any gaping holes in that days schedule and schedule more recordings while I'm at work.

It basically grabs the information from mythbackend and sorts through it grabbing the next 10 movies with the recordingstatus of "will be recorded". You can have it run on another machine as long as you can access the IP from the backend server on that machine.

Its GPL and if you have any improvements please let me know so I can incorporate those changes and put it back up. I basically have it run as a cron job around 5 AM in the morning. It will send the email either through SENDMAIL or SMTP.

My crontab setting is:

0 5 * * * python /home/mythtv/mythtv.py 1>/dev/null 2>&1

Make sure and read the file for what variables to change and credits.
