Linux-based HES does PVR, networking, MP3s, more
Anonymous Reader writes "Interact-TV has introduced a smaller, less expensive version of its Linux based "Telly" home entertainment server. The $749 Telly model MC800 features a sleeker, more compact case than its predecessor, the $899 MC1000. Both provide the same features, according to Interact-TV, including broadband Internet, cable and satellite TV, digital audio and video entertainment, and digital home networking. Both support DV recording with free program guide, CD/DVD playback, ripping and burning, music "jukebox," photo albums and slideshows, and Internet info including weather, movie listings, and financial news."
