MythTV Related Info

Started out as a simple MythTV user, decided I liked the way things were implemented, joined mailing list, started reading up on customized MythTV.
From there I started experimenting with various chipsets and systems, and found a good base set of parts that work well in MythTV. Started selling systems locally, first to family and friends. Once I got their feedback, I opened up a small online shop to sell MythTV systems to the general population as well as to MythTV enthusiasts. http://www.pauselivetv.com

Current Interests

Anything electronic. Working with Via embedded systems to see about bringing them to widespread use as a (solid) MythTV frontend. Integrating systems throughout a home to enable home automation at very usable levels in part of a home. Currently looking at systems to integrate into a bathroom environment; roadblocks encountered are mostly related to steam from a shower :D
