This is my site for one of my favourite Linux applications: MythTV, a Digital Video Recorder (DVR). In October of 2006 I took the plunge, bought a machine, a capture card, downloaded MythTV and settled in for an afternoon of Googling, installing, and configuring. (Well actually a few afternoons, and evenings, as I tried various things, including a couple Windows DVRs.) Nine years later I take it for granted that I can watch TV the way I do, and I would never go back to just a plain old TV.

2015.08.30 : Finally a new MythTV machine, after almost 9 years of appliance-like service, running 24/7 since October 2006 except for two 6-month periods when I was down south It's still all analog SD but with new horsepower I have room to add digital, maybe OTA HD, and nerd-out on new features and capabilities.

2015.10.19 : digital and HD with a new STB, a whole new world of nerding-out.
