The Problem

For years I have always wanted to do without a cable tv or satellite provider. This dream began years ago in 2003 when I found MythTV. It was able to capture over-the-air (rabbit ears) channels as well as cable channels if you had cable tv. The best part was that it could record shows and save them. It was really the first DVR besides TiVo. Even better was that I could download shows and movies online and save them to MythTV. It was so close to what I wanted, but just not quite there. This was also limited to viewing on a single TV, I couldn’t easily copy the shows to a laptop More >
