Nasa is a nomad. When at home, wherever his hat is, he likes to fiddle with linux (especially enlightenment), fix his pond, and/or watch sports. I have dabbled in some code...

My main goal when building my system was to create a HTPC. Specific features I am going for (and their status) are:

  • 1. STD PVR -- Works
  • 2. HD PVR -- Needs Help
  -- I don't have means of getting HD content into myth (as of yet) my HD3250 has never  
     provided content over firewire and I have had no luck getting HD content into my 5500 
     via cable.  I am looking at getting a new box from Comcast.  And possibly adding an OTA 
  • 3. Play Music -- Works
  • 4. Play DVD -- Works
  • 5. Play Video files -- Works
  • 6. Play Games
  -- MAME, Works
  -- Linux native games, Works
  -- Still working on SNES games
  • 7. Control system via 1 remote -- Needs more work
  -- 880 needs some more tweaking to get it like I want, will post results when done.
  • 8. Play games via wireless gamepad -- Needs more work
  -- more work by me needs to be done.
