After some initial testing of PseudoTV this morning, I was almost shocked at how well it worked on the RasPi; took less than 20 seconds to schedule (for testing, the library only has some kids shows and a dozen movies), and switching between channels was faster than selecting a video via the iOS remote.

Some audio issues with pops and clicks, and preliminary testing shows that it may mute when switching, but this feels like a good direction in the fight to keep cable off for the summer.
