Odds and ends on Life with Linux. Although I'm a diehard Debian user, you may find my raves and ramblings entertaining. I'm intentionally writing my posts in a somewhat light style, hoping to foster as many dialogues with visitors - yes, that's you - as I can.

Getting my hands on a PVR for free

Not since the danish television network went digital have I had a regular video recorder like the VHS machine everyone once owned.

Sure, commercial products exist, but are usually crippled - recordings cannot be exported for long time storage.
A PC running some kind of PVR software will do the trick, but drains power and makes noise. No go.

So, I thought to myself: What's always on in my home, and does not consume oodles of energy?
