Re: New channels

The SD web app makes callbacks to the TMS servers to set up and change accounts. Yes but how nice it would be if the end user could, using their pvr's interface, make a call to the SD server so the SD web app would make a call to the TMS servers to change an account. Dropping a station is really th...

Re: In Response to the Newsletter

I realize that as long as there is little incentive for anyone to fix the current status quo there will be hurdles to innovation. Goal: Watch any thing at any time from anywhere. Plan A: Any pvr software can find, list and play online videos offered by the networks. There's no need to record or sto...

Re: In Response to the Newsletter

Afterall, we are already a group of intelligent consumers that have strayed outside the main stream of LiveTV and Tivo... anarchists if you will. We don't want to watch commercials, we don't want to pay for guides, we don't want to support agendas, we want freedom. Well the first thing you need is ...

Re: Windows PVR

Windows is ok for analog but for digital and multiple recordings Mythtv is the only way to go. I never could get a firewire primer to work right in windows. Plus the same HDTV card I use in MythTV only recorded when it felt like it in Windows. I was staying out of this because I don't really see an...

Re: In Response to the Newsletter

As a paying member of Schedules Direct, I have the following comments about the recent newsletter: 4. Financial Support for Open Source Applications I disagree entirely. That's fine, some people enjoy being wrong. I have envisioned a residential video library system that goes far beyond your imagin...

Re: Lineup Issue - Mapping to OTA ATSC

Huh?
If you have ATSC then you need a lineup for local broadcasts.
If you have cable then you need a linup for that provider.

Did you setup two lineups on SD?

Re: Reruns?

Just to show that I'm not a complete crackpot. Here's a link to a speech interface toy http://www.tvscheduler.net/files/SpeechInterface.zip It doesn't do much but it will let you add a new phrase, and new responses, and new commands. Any speech recognition engine doing dictation should work. Take a ...

Re: Reruns?

I got the information. On reruns or the information about an audio interface for mobile computers? I followed your link to PQ.

Re: I don't see any advantage over Media Center???

Unlike my Replay units, MCE has a history log so if something is missed, I can see why. It also can show what's going to be recorded. I haven't noticed it missed anything. Yeah I considered that important too. I actually created a page in the interface that lists the programs of interest that weren...

I don't see any advantage over Media Center???

I don't see any advantage over Media Center... it seems to do everything I need, or at least allows plugins for it. Robert, I was kind of surprised to read this. I found the Media Center to be nearly unusable. In fact, given a choice between the Media Center and whatever DVR was available from my p...
