Re: One-box soultion

look up »www.mythbuntu.org

they give the software away for free

you need to supply [n+1] computers, where n= the number of TV's. the computers can be cheap (acer revo aspire 1) or something cheaper. maybe an old computer?

the [+1] equation is the server; where you put in a OTA capture card and OTA HD Antenna.

I'm aware of Myth and its variants. What I'm saying is that, if someone would build the boxes and have them ready to plug in, they'd sell. Do what TiVo did. After all, TiVo is basically a computer running Linux and their DVR software, packaged up in a nice case. Build something that's a cross between that, Roku, and Boxee, and sell it cheap.
