Been busy. Work is back in full throttle, so time for coding and blogging is low.
Hopefully, I will earn enough in the coming month to take it easy in march, then go crazy in april and so on.
This blog has been much more fun than I expected and I want to thank the guys at pyds for hosting it for free, they provide excelent service :-)
Life is good. I have been playing with a flyvideo2000 I will install for a client: sweet TV board. I think I will buy myself one.
It works with linux (after some learning, which is good, too)
MythTV turns it into a lovely recorder, TV, etc, except you need internet for it to work at all (or else it doesn´t get a channel list!).
For a few dollars I get another TV and VCR, which I don´t need but is cool anyway
With a little effort and some cool free code, it can monitor surveillance cameras, saving a client of mine from buying a digital recorder... and giving me some more money :-)
It has a remote that is supported by lirc (haven´t made it work yet) so I am supposed to be able to remotely control mplayer/kaffeine/whatever (even when not playing TV :-)
So, all in all, fun stuff.
The only bad piece is, I haven´t coded much (or at all), but I will get to it on due time.
