These pages are dedicated to my (abandoned) mediaserver project.
What's this all about, see my introdution (and why I stopped working on it).
As soon as I have decent hardware available I will continue this project.
What's to come:

||Mediaserver - Introduction
Notes and information regarding my actual home project: a media server based upon Linux.
I started this because our DVD player for the backup tv died and I wasn't willing to buy a replacement device. At that time I was already experimenting with streaming to our BD player in the living room. Unsatisfied with its abiltity to record tv programs I thought is was time to start researching for the ultimate solution to our media needs
||Mediaserver - TV tuner card (Tevii S660)
I did some extensive research what tv tuner would be the best buy. I first focused on PCI-tuners but PCI has no future any more. PCIe would be fine, but my prototype Mediaserver - hardware has no PCIe Slot - too bad. So I endet up with a USB tuner: the Tevii S660.
