EfficentPC

Just purchased an ubuntu mythTV box from efficentpc (from fleabay). It claims to run (on idle) on 60watts.

It is very nice, quiet and well, generally very useable. Qudos to them (and it doesn't crash either!)

Now I can record my TV programs when I'm out and about and watch them at convient time. It's kind of a 'post-video on demand' service!

Excellent, I've looked at them before, always too chicken to try it.

It arrived today - I've not managed to tune it yet (still in the office) but will do tonight!

It's a small but heavy bit of kit - pretty blue lights on it ;- )

Not all of the mythTV extensions are installed yet, but I hope to remedy this.

I would like a pvr, for preference one which it is easy to dump stuff onto DVD from for future viewing

I will be intrigued to here how you get on with it
