Overview

Practical MythTV: Building a PVR and Media Center PC by Michael Still, Stewart Smith

This book takes a project based approach to implementing your own MythTV setup, from selecting hardware right through to advanced customization. You will learn how to record your favorite television shows, store your DVDs for later playback, create a music library out of your CD collection, and even use your personal video recorder (PVR) to do Voice Over IP. This is a book for hobbyists and technology do-it-yourselfers that wish to create their own PVR or media center. With this book as a guide they will be able to choose the right hardware (or recycle existing hardware) and then install all the necessary software.
