Re: powerline ethernet connection

I had a good experience with an powerline Ethernet adapter too. They are good for hard to reach areas in your house.

Re: MythTV, Handbrake and Android conversions

If anybody can try my settings and let me know if they work for you? Obviously you need the packages for libx264 and libfaac installed on your system. Below are my results using Pat Davila's "Very good" version. ffmpeg job started: Tue Mar 16 20:33:19 EDT 2010 ffmpeg job finished: Wed Mar 17 00:19:...

Re: What is your favorite MythTV Feature?

My favorite MythTV feature without a doubt is commercial skipping.

Below is a YouTube video demonstration of commercial skipping during the NBC Nightly News.

Gmote Nexus One Demo on YouTube

Hi Apologies in advance, these videos are only vaguely MythTV related in that it uses my MythTV music files. Gmote is not really designed to be a standard MythTV remote control. It is more than that. You could use the Gmote Touch (Touchpad) feature to be a remote for MythTV interface if you turn on ...

@elgordo123

I just installed gmote. I'm going to use it for a few days and maybe create a video about it over the weekend. The Gmote Touch function is freaky cool. Thanks for the tip.

Re: last episodes question about getting the show in mp3

@lobosolo

Yeah. It is nice downloading oggcasts over the air. I use DoggCatcher on my Nexus One. It is a good app. There was something I didn't like about Google Listen but I can't remember what it was. I'm happy with DoggCatcher.

Mythmote Nexus One Demo on YouTube

Hey

Mythmote is an application for the Google Nexus One phone. You use it as a remote for your MythTV frontends. Works good and is free.

I published a demo of the Nexus One Mythmote app on YouTube.
