I understand tweaks are needed to get support into MythTV for the
HD-PVR. But IIRC some people have reported the latest MPlayer will play
the sample files from the HD-PVR. I was curious if anyone had tried
that with the AppleTV.
I too have an HD-PVR sitting in the box waiting for the drivers. It
will do amazing things for the WAF, if and when it functions as
advertised. An AppleTV as a silent, small, and attractive front end
will do even more.
I haven't smoked for 1 year, 9 months and 3 weeks, saving $2,981.67 and
not smoking 19,877.84 cigarettes.
