LinHES: LinHES R7.4 "rdt"

Added by cecil over 11 years ago

It was 9 years ago today that KnoppMyth R1 was first released. It was also 9 years ago when I first met R. Dale Thomas (rdt). At first, Dale host the ISO for KnoppMyth. Shortly there after, he started helping me with development. Living a relative short distance from one another, Dale and I became friends. Unfortunately, the good ones depart us all too soon. I miss my friend and so it is in his honor I release LinHES R7.4 to mark the ninth anniversary of KnoppMyth/LinHES.

The changelog is sparse. This release is primarily to mark the anniversary and to remember our friend. ripD was originally written by me but he spruced it up a great deal. It originally only mirrored a DVD. Since MythTV no longer has menu entries for backup your DVD, I've added the functionality to LinHES. Also included is MythTV 0.25.2. If you are running LinHES R7.3, a simple
pacman -Syu will do. If you are running an earlier version, see this post on upgrading.

LinHES: LinHES R7.00.03 Beta Release

Added by brfransen over 12 years ago

LinHES R7.00.03 is available for download. R7.00.03 is a beta release before the final R7.01.00.

We worked out various issues with upgrading from earlier releases to R7.00.03 so doing an auto upgrade from the CD or via pacman should work (Backup First!). However, we'd ask you wait until the R7.01.00 release before upgrading your production systems. If you have the hardware to test upgrades or want to do a clean install, please give R7.00.03 a try. Please report any bugs you may encounter.

LinHES: PCS-2 External edition

Added by jams over 12 years ago

If your looking for a simple and clean way to power your HTPC on/off via your remote, I would give the PCS-2 some serious consideration.

The fine folks at SIMEREC let me preview the external edition of the PCS-2.
Gotta say they did a great job with it, I like it even more then the internal product.

The internal PCS-2 works very well. However the install involves a little bit of wire splicing, which can be a little off-putting.

The external edition removes the need for wire splicing and only requires 2 connections inside the case and one free PCI bracket.
From start to finish the product can be hooked up in as little as 2 minutes. As an added touch they included a power button with the external receiver.
For people that like to hide their htpc, this effectively give you the ability to relocate the power button to someplace within easy reach.

There is no firm release date yet for the external edition of the PCS-2, but I believe it is targeted to ship before the end of the year.
