About MythTV

MythTV has often been described as TiVo on steriods. It can manage not only your TV recordings, but can store and manage music and photographs.

Quoting from the Wikipedia entry on MythTV

MythTV is a GPL open source application for Linux designed to allow any computer (that meets the specified minimum requirements) to function as a digital video recorder and a digital home entertainment system.

Here in New Zealand there is a growing and enthusiastic MythTV community, as well as a recent commercial MythTV offering called myPVR from OpenMedia.
