My MythTV system is now mostly complete. My Biostar motherboard had a defective TV out, so it was sent in and now the TV out is working. I’ll post a more complete update in the next few days. In short, Biostar = bad, Albatron = good.
Also, had a fun adventure stringing some cat5 cable to the part of our house where our TV is. After sawing through the floor to get to the previously-inaccessible crawlspace, we found, among other things, a working wire stripper, pipes connected to nothing, and lots and lots of spider webs.
And my latest book project is just about complete. I’ll have some news there too in a day or two.
