MythTV Talk

The talk that Frank Ten Thy gave to the group on how to install and configure MythTV was excellent. He installed the Mythbuntu distribution on a computer and used the HDHomeRun tuner as its input. He brought along a set of rabbit-ears for an antenna and we could see that configuring for that tuner was a snap.

Frank then set up another box he had built and installed as a MythTV backend and frontend to show us how other media is handled by the program. He had imported several DVDs to the box and had recorded a bunch of television programs. They all played back flawlessly.

About half of our users group was all set to create a MythTV installation after seeing Frank do it, so that shows how well it was received.
