Introduction

I'm one of the contributors to MythTV. While not a heavy developer, I am currently responsible for the MythFlix code as a maintainer, not author. I have contributed various small enhancements to the code over time and have been trying to also help here with the Wiki.

My setup

I currently have a multi-system setup consisting of a master backend running Fedora Core 6 with SD and HD tuners, and a remote frontend in my living room. I run SVN in production most of the time and find it very stable with a high WAF.

Master Backend

ASRock K7VT2 Motherboard
Athlon 2000 Processor
512MB RAM
CoolerMaster Stacker 4 drive, 3 bay unit
Close to 1TB of recording space spread over 4 drives of varying sizes
Hauppauge PVR-500 dual tuner
Two AverMedia 180 HD tuners
CentOS 6

Main Frontend

Zotac based ION board

Zotac ION 230 motherboard with PSU
2GB RAM
M350 Mini-ITX enclosure
Addonics CF to SATA adapter
Ridata 8GB Lightning Compact Flash x233 as boot drive.
Lite-on SK7551 Wireless IR keyboard [1]
URC-8910 IR Remote with JP1 programmed to emulate the keyboard
CentOS6

Two Zalman Fan Mate 2 - adjusts fan speed for quieter operation
450MB RAM
eVGA AGP FX5200 Fanless Nvidia graphics card
Aopen 7.1 low profile sound card (highly recommended)

Projects

I'm currently spending little spare cycles tweaking MythCenter (non-wide) for MythUI. Not many themes are targeting 4:3 screens anymore so the non-wide theme choices are sparse.
