I have been tinkering with brew your own home DVRs for years with limited success. I have gone through various incarnations MythTV, Mac OS running proprietary software, even a painful weekend with MIcrosoft Media Center.

Silicondust HD HomeRunThis past weekend I was introduced to the SiliconDust HD HomeRun which streams HD from it’s dual tuners over your network. You can then receive the signal via Windows, Linux, or Mac OS X (It even says so right on the box). I was introduced to the device at last weekend’s LInuxfest by some guys manning the MythTV booth. Hopefully this weekend will be spent reinstalling my MythTV box to work with the HD HomeRun and will be the beginning of my ideal networked media center. More adventures in open source multimedia to come…
