How-to build a Linux DVR

Link to this post 23 Jan 10

I wrote up an quick how-to on building a Linux DVR. I thought I would share it as my first post on this forum. Let me know if it is informational and if you have any questions. I have built quite a few DVR's from a wide range of hardware capabilities. I will be happy to answer any questions to help you get starterd. Note this article is mainly geared to the beginner.

That is a nice short guide, but I fear that beginners may have problems with the DVR software installation, I would recommend that you cover that part in-depth in another tutorial.

That's a good point and a great idea. I'll get working on an install guide. For the time being here is a great guide from MythPVR.com. Its an install guide for an older version of Mythbuntu but it is still pretty good.
