Just wanted to say hi and ask some questions. I've been playing with HA stuff for a while and I've decided to try pluto and mythTV. I'm currently running my own developed software for HA and freevo as my pvr. I downloaded the kickstart cd, but I want to ask some questions before I continue:
(a) Do I need internet access to install pluto from the kickstart cd?
(b) I'm planning on having a master server which will be in the closet and another pc in the livingroom for the mythtv frontend and another pc in the kitchen for controlling my ha stuff.
(b1) Does pluto automatically install the mythtv backend on my pluto server via the kick start cd?
(b2) Is there a frontend that I can use in the kitchen, except mythtv.
(b3) If I install mythtv in the livingroom will it be connected to pluto and show the status from pluto?
(c) I've got an analogue tv card, will does work in the master server for tv recordings?
(d) I've built some of my own devices for my HA, is it possible to develop my own plugins for pluto to access these devices ?
(e) Any other info/tips/wisdom you can share with me?
