I am a relatively new and VERY happy user of Ubuntu! I currently use my T60 with 7.10 as my main pc, via a wireless network with a 500 gb NAS and network printer. My NAS currently provides support for media streaming and I currently use this feature for music (MP3).
I am going to use my old Win desktop (2.4 Ghtz) as a media server for music and videos. I have an extensive collection of VCR tapes that I want to preserve and I might as well spool all of my DVDs on to the media server also. I have no interest in TV at this time! It seems to me like MythTV is the best option for my project.
My questions are:
1) Can I configure MythTV for music and video support now and add TV later if I wish, without having to completely reinstall MythTV?
2) Given the forced move to digital TV in a year or so, if I have to buy TV cards now, can I provide for future digital TV in my hardware decisions today?
3) Do you have any additional suggestions for my proposed project?
All comments GREATLY appreciated!
