Run your own home-entertainment server with Linux and MythTV: we show you how.

,----[ Quote ]
| So, this article will be about running a home-entertainment server, using
| Ubuntu GNU/Linux at its core, with TV functionality from the powerful MythTV
| project. Above all, this project will be about interoperability - not every
| household runs an all-Linux setup, so we'll be looking at multiple ways to
| enjoy your server's functions without needing to replace every OS in the
| house. If you have no interest in some of the extra functionality, there are
| a number of alternative GNU/Linux distributions available which are
| MythTV-specific, such as Mythbuntu or KnoppMyth. However, for this more
| general project, I've decided to stick with a "normal" desktop distribution.

Linux Media Center PCs Review Roundup

| LinuxMCE vs. MythTV. LinuxMCE is the most amazing thing to come out of the
| multimedia world on any platform, period. But try finding an OEM carrier that
| will sell this amazing product to you, pre-installed. You won't find many.
|
| While the big box stores choose to sell the ever-lame Windows MCE, one
| provider had the guts to step into the ring and truly provide us with a
| viable Linux media appliance suitable for our living rooms. MythTV, while not
| as 'flash-bang-pretty' as LinuxMCE, has been around long enough to find
| itself in the position of being a solid, long-term project with some
| fantastic user and developer support.
