 A Beginning Look At MythTV

If I has twice the time I seem to end up with, I would do a lot of projects like this. Kudos to all the developers out there building us all these cool, fun, wonderful toys.

"MythTV is similar to TiVo in its ability to record TV shows onto a hard drive. MythTV also offers a point-and-click scheduling feature with TV listings downloaded off the Internet, the same way that TiVo does. Unlike a TiVo, however, you can build as much storage into a MythTV box as the Linux kernel and/or your budget allows. With its links to Xmame, MythTV also lets your box act as a video arcade. Similar to the X Window System, MythTV is set up on a client/server model. This means the TV tuner card(s) can be in one computer while the display is in another computer(s)."
