Hi. I've been looking into a PVR to run with my OzTiVO. OzTivo is a hack so that we in Australia can enjoy TiVO. The EPG is a volunteer effort and there are about 750 OzTivo users in Australia.
I found Pluto and it looks good. I already run an asterisk (well a couple) servers but the other goodies with Pluto make it very tempting. And since Debian is my prefered distro makes it more tempting. So now the questions....
Can I use the MythTivo http://tivo-mplayer.sourceforge.net/mythtivo.html
plugin? Better still can I store native TiVO TY video files on a Pluto core and retreve them for viewing on my TiVO (probably not)? Is there a hack/setup where I could use my other series 1 TiVO as a frontend (media director)? I don't mind blowing away the OS in the TiVO just looking for a frontend alterative and I have one laying around. If not is an Xbox ok?
What flovour of Asterisk comes with Pluto? Is it @Home or vanilla? I am assuming its normal Asterisk because Pluto is running in Debian. If so how are the conf files edited/created? And can I just chuck in my working Conf files into the Pluto box?
I am also using Smoothwall as my Firewall do I have to use Pluto as a 2 NIC solution? I understand why Pluto would want this role for QOS mainly for the VoIP side of things. I need to use smoothwall for SSH access.
My main objective is to have a server that can dish up the video/audio files when and where I want them. I'd prefer to use my TiVO as a PVR and have another (or multiple) frontends for Pluto/Myth so I wouldn't need the PVR aspects. So can I install Pluto without any capture cards?
That's enough for now!!
