According to Interact-TV, the Telly MC1000d developer version is a
complete system with full capabilities for playing, recording, and
archiving TV shows; ripping and burning CDs; playing DVDs, music,
and digital photos; and sharing media over a home network. But in
addition, the special developer version comes with tools that
enable developers to create new features, enhancements, and in
other ways customize the Telly...
"The Telly MC1000 is based on a unique 'Entertainment Operating
System' (EOS), developed by Interact-TV, that manages the device's
internal multimedia and entertainment and user interface functions.
According to Interact-TV, EOS consists of a combination of Linux
kernel 2.4.18 and other standard Linux components (such as X
Windows and a built-in webserver and samba server), along with
custom media management and media distribution technologies, device
drivers, user interface, and other software..."
