MTVG and XMLTV represent the perfect solution to get an updated TV schedule under Linux. It's fast, it's easy to configure and thanks to MTVG it's easy to browse and to use. You get notified for things you don't want to miss, the listings get updated automatically and, thanks to the way KDE sessions work, you can just take advantage of the MTVG system tray icon, have the application always run in the background and never think of it until you need it.

- Installing MythTV on Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy) with a Hauppauge PVR-150/250/350/500
First, credit where credit is due: I first set up MythTV under Fedora Core 3, using the excellent HOWTO by Jarod Wilson. For reasons better left unexplained, I decided to try out MythTV on Ubuntu. For this, I leaned heavily on two HOWTOS: one written by Andrew Barbaccia and one by Joe Kallo. While each are very useful, I did run into a couple of issues that I wanted to pass along, and therefore, this HOWTO was born. In this HOWTO, I also give you links to various files along the way, so that you can see exactly how it is set up on my system.

- O'Reilly -- Building My MythTV Box, Part 1: Hardware
I recently started building my own MythTV system, for reasons that are detailed elsewhere. Even though the broadcast flag was struck down on May 6, I nevertheless pressed ahead with building my system because I was sure the broadcast flag would be back. Although the Innovation Coalition won round one, it was only the opening skirmish. Sure enough, it rose from the dead, rather like a vampire, on Monday. The only sure-fire way to keep my right to tinker with TV was to beat the original deadline.
While the Broadcast Flag battle continues, it's still legal to put together your own home-theater PC. Matthew Gast has begun constructing his system and covers hardware in this first installment of the series.

- overclockers guide to building a cheap htpc
For ~$800, it is quite possible to build your own HTPC running a free Operating System software called Knoppmyth. Which means that you get to spend your entire budget on hardware, giving you more grunt for your dollar. The machine described below is more than able to drive MythTV (http://www.overclockers.com.au/wiki/MythTV) and will also be able to record multiple shows simultanuously when later upgraded with extra tuner cards. The prices between brackets below are averages of the prices found on StaticIce (http://www.staticice.com.au/) for the different parts.

- UPnP Client? | MythTV | Users
Read "nick at rout" responce to UPnP client, it's perfect, well not really but it is what i'm after. "The other option of course is to simply nfs or cifs mount the video directory of your slug to a subdirectory of /mnt/videos. Then you don't need step 4, the files just appear as if on the local drive, but when you play them they come over the network via nfs or cifs. (cifs is the samba protocol, I believe it is more capable than smbfs but I can't remember what gave me that impression) "
