I have rewritten this email 5 times. I have decided the best way for me
to make my case is to describe how I want this to work.
Storing in DVR-MS format would enable me to set up a central Linux File
server to store all recordings from MythTV and Windows Media Center in
one place. Even though MythTV has a superior frontend interface, my
primary desktop computer is Windows, so I'd like to use Media Center to
view all my recorded television. Another plus to this is that I would
be able to use my Xbox 360's as frontends for my MythTV recorded
programming. From my limited understanding and from what I have been
able to uncover from the web, DVR-MS is just MPEG2 wrapped with Media
Center's metadata. Is it at all possible for MythTV to optionally save
it's recordings in this format with the metadata.
I love Linux for all server 'stuff', however I still prefer windows on
the desktop. Right or wrong, the majority of the people on this planet
use Windows on the desktop.
