MythTV -- Linux-based Open Source PVR Software

PVR Hardware Database for MythTV

OK, if you've got Tivo, and like hacking, this is for you... me, I'm without TV/Cable/Sattelite TV -- which sucks, because I really want to build one of these things. (Sadly, my parents have a Tivo already, so that one's out. )

The cool part about this is that it can expand as you have time/parts/etc. Think about a Tivo that you could add in a hard drive 6 months after you got it. Then 3 months later a DVD-R.

Personally, I think it's about the coolest thing going on in TV today, including the programs. OK, maybe not The West Wing, or CSI, but that's about it.

you gotta build one! Even with broadcast TV it will change your life. We did the Tivo (not hacked yet) about a year ago and it is so liberating.

I know my parents think it's the bomb, so to speak; it's definitely tops in my book, I can watch my favorite programs without having to set up tapes and such. I realy like it.
