Homemade tivo
    #2119994 - 11/18/03 03:42 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)


I am going to do this. But where the hell do I find a dvb card? I will need a dvb-c card since I will be using cabel tellevision. I have done a few searches and only found places outside of the U.S. that sell this card. I want to order it from a U.S. store. Does anyone know where I can find it at?

I'd recomend also looking into myth tv, it has support for various plugins so the system can act more like a centrilized entertainment system.


Features listed on website

Basic 'live-tv' functionality. Pause/Fast Forward/Rewind "live" TV.
Support for multiple tuner cards and multiple simultaneous recordings.
Distributed architecture allowing multiple recording machines and multiple playback machines on the same network, completely transparent to the user.
Compresses video in software using rtjpeg (from Nuppelvideo) or mpeg4 (from libavcodec). Full support for Hardware MPEG-2 encoder cards (Hauppauge PVR-250 / PVR-350). Preliminary support for DVB cards and the new pcHDTV tuner card.
Completely automatic commercial detection/skipping
Grabs program information using xmltv.
A fully themeable menu to tie it all together.
Displays basic program information on channel change using a themeable semi-transparent on-screen display.
Basic video editing abilities. Optional transcoding to remove the commercials from the video file to save space.
Picture in picture support, if you have more than one tuner card.
Electronic Program Guide that lets you change channels and select programs to record.
Program Finder to quickly and easily find the shows you want to record.
Scheduled recordings of TV programs, and playback and deletion of those programs, all through a themeable UI. (The first two screenshots are the default theme, the third is iulius.
Browse and resolve recording conflicts.
A nice web interface to let you select programs to record remotely.
Rip, categorize, play, and visualize MP3/Ogg/FLAC/CD Audio files. (FLAC, Vorbis, and MP3 encoding). Create complex playlists (and playlists containing playlists) through a simple UI.
An emulator frontend. (MAME, NES, SNES, generic PC games)
An image viewer/slideshow application.
A weather module.
A generic video player module, with automatic metadata lookups
A DVD player / ripper module. Make perfect backups, or transcode down to smaller file sizes.
An RSS news feed reader module.

Thanks for the input man. Greatly apreciated. But there is no U.S. stores in that link you put up there. Why can't you by that card in the U.S.?

heres a link to one in canada. http://www.dvbwest.com/ im not real sure about why you can't buy that card in the states. but if i was to guess i would say it has something to do with decoding encripted satilite signals. with the right dish and a few software mods that can be used to watch PPV movies and other pay channels. if your intrested in that PM me and ill send you a couple links
