[News] Linux Used to Build Another DVR

Hash: SHA1

New 16-Channel H.264 Embedded Linux Standalone DVR for Business Security Camera

,----[ Quote ]
| We are proud to further expand our existing H.264 Standalone DVR product line 
| with the addition of our DVR-26416S 16-Channel Embedded Linux H.264 
| Standalone DVR. This advanced remote viewable DVR is great for home or 
| business camera installs.   


Linux is kicking ass in this area. Microsoft is practically here dead with CE,
according to its internal documents.


Neugent Powers New Line of Cutting-edge Embedded DVR

,----[ Quote ]
| In a move to cater to desktop DVR enthusiasts, Neugent Technologies, a
| leading developer of Linux-based digital video surveillance solutions has
| expanded its line of embedded DVR with the introduction of SP-2000 desktop
| standalone.


Surviving the recession with Free Enterprise OSes (Part 2)

,----[ Quote ]
| In Part 1, I discussed the four Free Linux distributions that are best
| position to provide extended support and ample functionality to an end user
| through a protracted recession,  as well as having the
| characteristic “safeness” or “stability” factor in terms of being able to
| weather the economic storm — i.e., their relative ability to resist the
| inevitable Darwinian culling of the herd that is likely to befall many of the
| less popular or less-supported distributions. In this second part, I’m going
| to list the Enterprise-class Free and Open Source Operating Systems which
| have similar characteristics. Unlike the previous list, not all of the OSes
| listed here are Linux-based — some of these are UNIX systems.


MythTV, Rainy Day Project With Staying Power

,----[ Quote ]
| There are a number of MythTV-centric distributions available which make the
| installation and configuration process easier. Knoppmyth, Mythbuntu, and
| Mythdora install the base distribution, common drivers and services used on
| DVR boxes (such as LIRC), MythTV packages, and offer the easy install of any
| add-ons and plug-ins. Configuration is, conceptually, anyway, really simple.
| The sticking points for me -- and for many others -- came down to hardware.


Building An Ubuntu MythTV Box

,----[ Quote ]
| The Ubuntu 7.04 setup with MythTV had gone smoothly and in no
| time we were watching and recording TV using the Hauppauge
| WinTV-PVR-500 MCE. While we have done multiple MythTV setups
| in the past, it was incredibly easy to setup on Ubuntu Feisty Fawn.


MythTV vs. Vista MCE: First Impressions

,----[ Quote ]
| First, I suppose I need to start with a disclaimer before discussing
| the relative merits of MythTV and Vista MCE as I've experienced them
| over the past month.


The various levels of suckage - Windows MCE

,----[ Quote ]
| I also worked for a company which designed dedicated media center
| machines. Slick looking boxes for under the tv action. drool. Around
| 20000 sold, and counting. So that means I have a very valid opinion.
| My son has a mce machine in his room, I have one in the lounge, and my
| car is running mce. I also got my brother and sister set up with mce.
| So now I have a very very very valid opinion.
| That means you have to sit and listen while I moan, because I am not
| moaning due to having a bad day. I am moaning due to this piece of
| crap microsoft is trying to tout to all and sundry. Yes, I have
| given it a good innings, more than most would attempt, and I still
| use it for lack of anything else wife friendly. That doesnt make
| it good.


Pre-build MythTV Linux PVR eats Windows MCE for breakfast

,----[ Quote ]
| Basically this is an unpack-and-plug-in solution to your media
| streaming/live TV pausing/scheduled recording needs.  Yes, you
| could build your own Linux box and install MythTV, but this saves
| you all the effort, is cheaper than a Windows Media Centre and
| gives you access to a vast range of fan-programmed add-ons.


Linux as a Media Centre

,----[ Quote ]
| As far as comparing Mythtv to Windows Media Centre, there is really
| no comparison, Mythtv is in a class of its own and puts WMC to shame
| in almost every department possible. This is the sort of application
| that could introduce Linux to many new users and households. Well done
| Isaac and the rest of the team, keep up the good work.


Monolith Media Center brings MythTV to the technophobe

,----[ Quote ]
| If MythTV's promise of a free Windows Media Center alternative sounds
| exciting, but you can't quite bring yourself to navigate the trials of
| a Linux install on your own, then you might be interested in
| Monolith's pre-built Media Center PCs, which come with MythTV
| pre-installed on top of Ubuntu Linux.


MythTV vs Windows Media Centre: is Linux still in with a chance?

,----[ Quote ]
| In terms of functionality, the machines were identical.
| MCE is beautiful to look at and use -- but if had the choice between a
| swankier interface and saving a few hundred dollars on the cost of the
| unit, I'd go for saving the money anyday.


MythTV - Record and playback all your favourite TV soaps in GNU/Linux

| KnoppMyth : This is an attempt at making the Linux and MythTV installation
| as trivial as possible...
| MythTV for XBox - This is a project which aids in setting up MythTV on
| ones XBox gaming station with ease...
| MiniMyth - This is a small Linux distribution which turns a diskless
| computer into a MythTV front-end.
| Fedora Myth(TV)ology - This is a project started by Jarod Wilson...

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
