My MythTV-Box

I am currently running a backend/frontend combo.


  • MSI MEGAPC 651 (MS-6760)
  • 1 GB RAM
  • Celeron 1800 MHz
  • 80 GB Harddisk
  • Hauppauge DVB-C (full featured)
  • ATI Radeon 9600XT


  • Ubuntu 6.06 (Dapper)
  • MythTV 0.20 (compiled from sources)
    • 65 GB storage using XFS as filesystem


  • MPEG4-NUV to AVI export without recoding
  • Getting a bigger harddrive
  • Lower the noise of the box (or get a better one)
    • Try adding a case fan and disable CPU-Fan speedup
  • Remote-Control
  • Replace the crappy DVD-ROM drive (does not read all DVDs) by a DVD-Recorder
    • Get MythArchive to work
  • Buy powerline network to remove the CAT5-Cable lying across the whole room ;-)
