It's already three releases after my last post about GNOME DVB Daemon. Since then I tuned the UI to make it more HIG compliant and hide device group combo boxes if there's only a single group. In addition, you can now edit the start time duration of an existing timer. Needless to say, I fixed some crashers, too.
Version 0.1.14 and above replace Totem's own DVB capabilities and hopefully provide a much improved user experience when watching TV. That's why a Fedora package finally exists, thanks to Bastien Nocera.
