Sorry for the slow blogfeed. I’ve been MIA on family business. Junior’s on his way to art school. Daddy’s tired.
Finally got a chance to view the second installed of Kevin Rose and Dan Huard’s Systm vidcast. This one is devoted to building a PC box dedicated to running MythTV, the Linux-based, open source alternative to TiVo. The installation how-to trips along at light speed, and will fail weaker hearts, but combining this visual show and tell with online docs and discussions should be enough to get moderately tech-savvy techies up and running.
