Re: mythtv distro

To get sound working via hdmi on my Zotac Ion frontend I had to manually create a ‘/etc/asound.conf’ file. You may want to search around to see if others have had a similar issue with your specific hardware. http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/ASRock_ION_330 http://asrockion.wiki.zoho.com/ http://asrockion.w...

Re: So Many Tablets But Which One?

I just saw this on tech bargains http://www.officedepot.com/a/products/134043/ViewSonic-G-Tablet-101-Android-22/ Is this a good tablet / deal ? The hardware is nice but the customized version of Android they've shipped is pretty much a disaster. The good thing is cyanogenmod is running on it and it...

Re: One more episode before the end of the year

Yeah, we never go around to that end of the year episode. Been swamped at work and the holidays were a bit busier than usual. Hopefully we'll have something in the next week or two. Sorry.

What do you think about the Archos 70 vs. the Archos 101? What made you choose one over the other?
The 101 became available first. So far I still like it.

I paid $280 for the Archos 101. Give it a little time and I'm sure they'll sell for $250. 2011 will be the year of the Android tablet.

Re: Starter cellphone.

A nicer low end phone is the Optimus L or S. The carriers sell them for $30-$50. My wife is asking for an Android phone and t-mobile is doing a buy/get promotion again. I'll probably pick up a pair of Mytouch 4Gs today.

Re: Starter cellphone.

Finally thinking about getting a cell phone are these a good deal? T-Mobile Comet Prepaid Android Smartphone http://www.frys.com/product/6440632 Meh. It's looks pretty low end. Another option is to get a used phone and do month to month. I know Tmobile and AT&T let you do this. Not sure about Veriz...

Re: Why did you guys forget about Maemo/Meego

I'm happy to hear you guys talking about Meego last night. Keep it up. Glad you liked it. Intel was nice enough to give us a bunch of laptops, 2 of which we will be giving away with Meego preloaded on them. We plan on having someone from Intel on to talk about it in February. I'm sure it will come ...

Re: ipad or ipod replacement?

I picked up an Archos 101 tablet for $280 from Tigerdirect. So far I'm liking it.

Re: Ebook readers

Picked up an Archos 101 Andorid tablet. It makes a pretty nice e-reader. Here are my initial thoughts on the device: http://patdavila.wordpress.com/2010/12/27/archos-101-internet-tablet-review-part-1-hardware/ http://patdavila.wordpress.com/2010/12/29/archos-101-internet-tablet-review-part-2-%E2%80%...

I've never run Amahi nor am I familiar with it but I do see they have a package for MythTV in their repos:
