TivoLog.prv has lines like so:
1201648375|WatchTV|recorded|tymplex||NULL|1201581581|-16781

I'm trying to understand what each entry means. Here are my guesses:
TIMESTAMP?|COMMAND|???????|CHANNEL||TMSID|??????????|SHOWINGTIME

I'm not sure if the first entry is an actual timestamp, or just an incremented number - but I don't really care anyways.

The entry that says "recorded", not sure what that is. Any ideas?
The last ????? unknown intrigues me. Anyone know what that number represents?

SHOWINGTIME, appears to correspond to the Time in the corresponding "Showing" object.

I don't remember offhand what the various fields represent specifically, but I can tell you that the two big numbers (TIMESTAMP? and the second ???????) are in fact timestamps in the form of "number of seconds since midnight, January 1, 1970."

If I did it right, the first number (1201648375) represents 1-29-2008 11:12:55pm GMT and the second number (1201581581) represents 1-29-2008 4:39:41am GMT.

Maybe that will help you figure out what they are. (If I had to guess, I'd say the first number was when the particular log entry was recorded and the second number is when the referenced program was recorded. *shrug*)
