Krys has it for me!

2. HDPVR- whatever it would take to make the HDPVR work, supposedly its functional now with MythTV trunk. In my opinion MythTV is just about useless since the very best quality a person can get is from s-video. The HDPVR encodes in x264 which would workout perfect if we have xinelib with vdpau support.
3. Pick a popular board and make it the LinuxMCE recommended board and make it pnp. For example, the Zotac board has everything that you would need for a great media director (if we have xinelib with vdpau) and can be up and running for about $160. When someone new comes to the project and wants a board that will work right now there are too many hoops to jump through and no clear answer on what will work with LinuxMCE.

Maybe even sell the Zotac (+VDPAU) all pre-configured for $250?  Make $40 per unit + shipping (inc Case).  I'd buy 2 at least.

I agree.  I have done the very same thing for Dashboards in my company.  Run maybe every 1/2 hr since most show are not any shorter than that?...  Give's the response to the request (qry) a google like speed.

Agree let us know.  What are you using to get the video out or connecting the VGA straight through to the TV?  Have you found a LP video card for the PCI slot?  Rob

Feature requests & roadmap / Re: OK, No CableCard what about....?

HI I checked into the card and the encoder chip on the card.  It says it supports
Supports MPEG-2 (MP@ML, SP@ML) and MPEG-1
- 525/60 (NTSC) up to 720x480 @ 30 fps
- 625/50 (PAL) up to 720x576 @ 25 fps
• HDTV MPEG capture

HDTV Capture typically means they pass through the MPEG HDTV stream but don't do anything with it.

So I don't think this is quite it yet, still waiting for the hauppauge card.

Fry's Has a 1T NAS that says it supports linux, but I wanted to see if anyone else has had any success with LinuMCE.

I saw this thread about a IOMega StoreCenter, but was unsure if anyone else had success or failure?

Slowwwlllyy building my system under radar of wife....


HD H.264 Component in Recorder!

A feature I'd like to see enabled so we can record/stream HD Premium channels!



 Hauppauge Demonstrates New Affordable High Definition Video Recorder for PCs

‘HD PVR’ records video from HD cable TV or satellite boxes into H.264 in real time.

Includes Hauppauge’s IR blaster for scheduled TV recordings.

2008 International CES

LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--2008 International CES, South Hall 4 - Booth #35328 -- Hauppauge Digital, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAUP), the world's leading developer and manufacturer of analog and digital TV receiver products for personal computers, demonstrated at CES 2008 for the first time their ‘HD PVR’, a USB personal video recorder which can record high definition TV video into H.264 in real time.

The HD PVR can connect to high definition cable TV or satellite TV set top box receivers, and uses it’s on-board H.264 hardware encoder to record high definition TV programs in an ISO standard HD H.264 AVC format in real time. The connections to the set top boxes are made via component cables, also referred to as ‘YPrPb’ or the red/blue/green connectors on HD set top boxes. The HD PVR includes a video player application which allows the recorded TV programs to be played back on a PC screen.

To enable automatic recording of TV programs, the HD PVR recorder includes Hauppauge’s IR Blaster, which controls the channels on most popular cable and satellite TV set top boxes in North America and Europe, and will allow users to schedule the recording of their HD programs. The IR Blaster is also used on Hauppauge’s WinTV-PVR-150 and WinTV-HVR-1600 TV receivers.

In addition to high definition ISO standard H.264 recordings, the Hauppauge HD PVR can also create AVCHD recordings, which is the format used on Blu-ray high definition players. As part of the software applications which will be shipped with Hauppauge’s HD encoder, a DVD burning application will be provided which can take AVCHD formatted recordings and burn them onto a conventional DVD disc. These discs can then be played in Blu-ray DVD players. About 2 hours of Blu-ray HD content can be recorded on a 4.7 GByte DVD disk.

The HD PVR will be available in Q1 2008, with a suggested retail price of $249.
