SmartDevices a chinese company is going to be releasing a 7" internet tablet for about $132 USD (maybe a little more after importing)
Here is the link on their page:

It already has unbuntu on it so it should be fairly easy to put orbiter on it.  Hopefully this turns out good.

Users / Tee PC tablet as an orbiter

This tablet looks pretty interesting with a 7" touch screen.  I was just wandering what you guys thought about this little unit.

would something like this make is so i could record high def digital cable right to my linuxmce box?  would it even work in linuxmce?  if it doesn't do you think it can be implemented.  It also looks like the card basically supports multiple recording of many streams just off the one card if it is done right.  please let me know what you think because I am very interested in this

Developers / i was wondering

I don't really want to have the clunky and apparently not completely reliable sony VGP-XL1B2 dvd juke box connected to my computer plus the added cost is pretty high.  Also the file size on the dvd's with the 1:1 rip make it so you would need alot of storage to have your entire library of dvd's.  Since storage is costly I was wondering if some sort of transcode function could be added so it can be converted to xvid or divx to save space here is a linux program I found that can do that but I would like some integration like the rip function maybe a rip and transcode button too.

Thanks for your time.  If this is just crazy for some reason or not aloud please disregard this.

Users / a couple of questions.

currently i have an extra am2 x2 4200 processor and some other spare parts.  I need a motherboard, video card, tv tuner(s?)
as i am very new to this whole linux stuff i am worried what i will buy will not be compatible.  please let me know about these items. - video card need the rgb out for my current television because it is a 32" standard def crt with rgb component inputs.  If this card will not work please let me know what will.

I really have no idea what motherboard to get but i know it needs to have pci express x16 for the video card that I'll need.  Also I think I'll need 2 or 3 tv tuner cards because sometimes I will record 2 shows at the same times and watch live tv.  So I will need slots for those too =\ If this tuner would work that would be great because it is cheap please let me know if it will and if there is a cheaper/ better option that you know of.

Thank you for all the help in advance
