There's been a lot of myth TV on the list lately....that I've been
ignoring since I don't have any interest. Until yesterday :).
I'm going to put a tv and system into our home gym. I want to install
something that will do:
- internet (i.e. download and play videos (legal ones :), I've signed up
for some exercise sites that sell videos online). As an aside, if
there's any cyclists out there, check out racedayrush.com - free cycling
- and maybe, some sort of internet radio. Because it'd be nice to watch
the videos but with sound coming from an internet radio station or a
playlist of some kind.
- and maybe satellite in addition to cable. Not a dealbreaker though.
- and a remote of some kind that we can use to control from the
treadmill or bike.
I had a brief look at some sites last night but there's a lot going on.
Any experts want to provide a summary as to:
- hardware; build my own or by off the shelf? If so, what should I buy?
- software; looks like a lot available distros (except my preferred
Mandriva distro). I'd bet I can just burn an ISO - but what distro
should I use. The myth tv site had dozens.
