Would it be possible to use MythTV in a hotel type environment with one
(or more) "media" servers that have real tuners - one tuner per channel
- - and then have the MythTV boxes in every room with some kind of
"Virtual Turner" that just gets the real-time stream from the streaming
servers in the building?
I looked at "Myth Stream" as a solution but I don't think that it would
incorporate in with the normal MythTV channels.
Maybe all I need to do is work out how to get a /dev/videoXX that is, eh
sort-of somehow, NFS mounting the real remote video stream and then tell
MythTV that that Video device is a tuner with only one channel tuned on it?
I love MythTV and have been using it at home for a couple of years now
but someone has been asking me about a big networked system with set-top
boxes and I'm obviously thinking about MythTV for the job.
thanks for any help!!
