Re: Life with the final device, life after Playon!DVR-HD
good to hear from you. Looks like you're occasionally dropping in to this forum out of curiosity (fond memories?).
For myself, and I know I threatened to return the POHD, but am currently using the device albeit with clunkiness. I suppose I recognise that these toys "last" about 2 years (like the modern mobile phone - either battery life or cracked screen usually spells demise).
And so it would do us no harm to just move on.
My OP was to fish for ideas as to where we, as individuals, were considering going. And my preliminary thoughts have been along the lines of MythTV.
You have steered me towards the XBMC harbour; I like it. The version Frodo in development will include native PVR and EPG. Supposed to be released shortly. Love that it's OPEN, and looks to have active and growing participation. Python plugins can be knocked up by those with talent in no time at all. I'll give it a couple of months and go down that track, with something like your mobo the MSI-E350IA-E45 AMD Fusion. It will be a device about 3-4 years "newer" than the POHD and hopefully (for the planet's sake) give me a base to work with and retain for a longer period until "end of life".
Lastly we need to keep it all positive and happy on these threads, else the padlock goes up. - Be Happy
Sure, we're moving on, just don't want to be kicked out of the house, please Mods.
PS. for those that may be unaware there's some pretty good info (on many topics) on the whirlpool forum
