MythTV + DLNA

Posted 08-17-2011 at 07:48 AM by disturbed1

Recently purchased a new Panasonic 1080P plasma. The Panasonic has nice streaming features which include - Netflix, Amazon, Pandora, Napster, built in media (Picture, Video, and Audio) playback from USB devices and SD cards, along with a DLNA receiver.

The manual boasts media compatibility with AVCHD and even avi/mpeg4 + MKV!! Something I had to check out, considering our vast movie library is all backed up to MKV files.

The recordings from our Backend show up and play...

Stress Testing MythTV Backend

Posted 04-15-2011 at 02:14 AM by disturbed1

My cable provider, WOW!, is starting their digital migration. Lucky for us, they've decided to listen to the customers, and are broadcasting their digital stations on Clear QAM!!!!

This digital migration means that I have to add/replace/upgrade some tuners in the backend. I'm currently running with 3 analog tuners (Asus Falcon2 x2, plus a HVR1600), and a single ATSC/QAM tuner from the digital side of the HVR1600. WOW! is doing their migration in stages, which means the analog tuners...

MythTV, multiple IVTV cards

Posted 02-05-2011 at 02:55 PM by disturbed1

I have a MythTV backend with 4 tuners. 2 Asus Falcon2's (PVR-150 like), and an HVR1600. The HVR1600 is a dual tuner with analog and ATSC/Clear-QAM inputs.

This setup has been running for roughly 3 years, with the same issues.
/dev/video# ordering -
Upon the rare reboot, the tuners would reorder themselves. Considering the Falcon 2's use IVTV, and the HVR1600's analog tuner uses cx18, this can cause issues with MythTV. Usually I just resolved this by quickly running mythtv-setup...

Native UT2004 from GOG.com

GOG.com has some pretty decent deals on Windows only games. A couple of these games were originally released with native Linux clients.

Installing UT2004 and running native on Linux is pretty straight forward. You will need wine to run the GOG installer though. I accomplished this on Slackware64 multilib without any issues.

You need -
UT2004 from GOG - of course
Wine
UT2004 latest patch.
I used ut2004.megapack-english-3.run which weighs...

Cheap Keyboards and Mice

Posted 06-16-2010 at 10:05 PM by disturbed1

The keyboards for my main PCs are quite old. Purchased sometime between 1999 and 2001. They are not the cleanest of things, some ink on the letters have worn off, and a few keys have become a little difficult to press at times. The oldest one is a Logitec multimedia keyboard, the other is a nice HP model with multimedia keys from the only OEM PC I've ever owned. They still work, they just have years of dust and dirt build up.

This got me thinking about the reason I still have these...
