announcement: myLTSPtv

Post by newmike »


In the last time i have been working a little more on the
'myLTSPtv'-terminal project.
For more info please visit:

Before i finally release the first alpha release candidate i have to
fix two things:

mythtv-dvd (not tested until yet)

After this, all official mythTV plugins are working as a local app
on the LTSP terminal.

For the alpha release I hope that somebody can help me to create
LTSP-packages! (I'm not a good scripter/programer)

Whats working:

.) LTSP is booting with etherboot
.) Xine ... working
.) LIRC ... working
.) DMA ... working (DVD drive)
.) Sound ... working
.) SSH-connection to the terminal is possible
.) NFS-shares (like Videos/Pictures/...) possible to automatically
mount NFS-shares
.) nice Picture during booting
.) modified kernel (started from the original LTSP kernel)
.) lots of modifications on the case (Harman Kardon AVR51)
.) modified one theme
.) LTSP boots directly into mythTV and LIRC
.) mythTV-music ... working
.) mythTV-DVD ... VCDs working
.) mythTV-DVD ... DVDs not tested
.) mythTV-Video ... working (IMDB also)
.) mythTV-stream ... some troubles (sound quality is very bad)
.) mythTV-Weather ... working
.) mythTV-games ... game-emulators are not tested
.) mythTV-news ... working
.) mythTV-browser ... some troubles (is hanging when I try to open a
webpage and the frontend get blocked)
.) mythTV-gallery ... working
.) timesynchronisation ... working

I haven't tried mythltsptv yet, but would like to ask anyway.

Is there any chance to see Myth-phone in this distro ?

This is the last thing I miss ....

in the future its possible, but not in the next time!
The main points for the near future are a installer/kernel package/bootsplash theme/documentation....
