A Media Management Sytem (Windows Media Centre) for linux?


Has anyone come across a project that combines,

My thinking says it would probably be based on
TVtime, Amarok and a video player (with database ability)?

Thank you

From the Screenshot that looks beyond perfect

I was expecting a half baked program. (which still would have been better that Windows MCE)



im just a bit bummed they used mplayer and standard hdd Directory heirachy.
instead of a database structure like Amarok for music.

Freevo is vastly superior to TiVo:

1. Terms of use won't be changed at whim
2. No subscription fee!
3. YOU decide what you record
4. You decide what gets deleted
5. Broadcast flags blocking Fair Use timeshifting? HA!
6. You can add any functionality you like and post your hacks online without fear of being sued by a big evil company for violating your EULA (Tivo hasn't done that yet, but it's only a matter of time)
7. Don't like the GUI? Change it however you like

I reported this thread to the admin folk with the following:

This guy is spamming every media thread with the ad for his web site. I was going to check out the site but by his spamming the board with it I lost interest.


Vikings: Spam spam spam spam...
Waitress: ...spam spam spam egg and spam; spam spam spam spam spam spam baked beans spam spam spam...
Vikings: Spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam!
