8) Question of the Month about Technical Training:

Each month Jeff Love will answer a current or important question that we have received about computer and IT training and career development.


October 2006 Question of the Month: 

How do Windows Media Center and Linux Myth compare to one another for a home TV and theater system? Which technology is better?


Answer:
There are two basic ways to set up a deploy a Personal Video Recorder (PVR): 1) via a dedicated hardware unit, such as a DVR, Tivo, or ReplayTV; or 2) through a software computer-based PVR that runs on your home or dedicated media computer, like Windows Media Center Edition and MythTV. If you have dedided to go the home or dedicated media computer route using Windows Media Center or MythTV, here are some details you will want to know and understand.

Microsoft provides lots of information and instructions on how to setup, get started, and how to use advanced features of Windows Media Center Edition. Generally, its very detailed and takes a good amount of perserverance and technical know-how to accomplish this on your own. This article shows you how to build a do-it-yourself version of Windows Media Center Edition using the best components at the lowest prices. Its goes into what you need to know to set this up on your own and is a little easier to follow than Microsoft's instructions, though it doesn't have its depth of knowledge.

This multi-part article examines the depth and scope of MythTV's capabilities. It states, "At its core, MythTV is a digital video recording solution composed of several modular components that facilitate time-stretched manipulation of live television feeds, but it's really much more than that." Here is another article that provides links to MythTV versions for specific platforms.

MythTV is a GPL licensed suite of programs that allow you to build the mythical home media convergence box on your own using Open Source software and operating systems. MythTV is known to work on Linux and Mac OS X (PowerPC and Intel). It does not run on Windows.

MythTV has a number of capabilities. The television portion allows you to do the following:
Other modules in MythTV include the following:
I believe the bottom line is MythTV is more configurable and offers greater flexibility than Windows Media Center Edition. On the other hand, once setup correctly and running, Windows Media Center Edition provides a quality entertainment solution with several features to choose from and use.

I hope this help you.

Intelligentedu.com Member Site FAQ Answers:

  1. Over half of the web sites and pages in our members site are not in the free section of our web site. The online training resources in our members' site are linked and laid out in a much more detailed fashion than those in the free section. This will save you time in finding all the best free training on the web.
  2. If you use a credit card when joining, you may choose to be billed by PayPal, or you may purchase from 2checkout.com, our authorized retailer, whichever you choose.
  3. You have a choice to select the non-recurring or recurring method of payment. If you select non-recurring, when your membership period expires, you will not be automatically charged another fee on your credit card or check.
