There's a major new release of the FOSS project LinuxMCE that includes whole-house HD PVR, movie, music and photo server, integrated telephony and smarthome.
All a/v source devices, DVD jukeboxes, and online media are shared through the home so you can put all your a/v gear in a rack in one room,
with only thin clients in the rest of the rooms. It includes a gyro-controlled UI that lets you navigate long lists of media and the TV's EPG by
waving, like a Wii, for fast, smooth control. Also wave to scan through your media and adjust volume and lights.
Watch a demo walkthrough on Google Video or download the video in
high-def at linuxmce.org. Installation is 25 minutes and every step is shown starting with a clean PC.
