MythTV for the Masses

Filed under: commons — Wendy @ 1:42 pm

If you’ve been wanting to try MythTV but have been put off by the thought of installing Linux from scratch, the latest KnoppMyth release, R5A22 “Crouching Tiger, High Def Dragon” takes away one major hurdle. Pop in the CD and this Knoppix-based distribution installs the whole system from the kernel up. Now, it included native HD support — and we don’t yet have broadcast flag to stop us from getting the hardware!

I’ve been running MythTV off a KnoppMyth-based box for almost a year now. Thanks to Cecil and Dale for a great job making this “TiVo on steroids” easy to install.
