Added by cecil almost 6 years ago

Well, you are most likely aware we were offline for a little while. We experienced hardware failure... But thanks to jams, we are back up and running! Also, much thanks to liv2cod for allow us have a server in his data center! At the moment, linhes.org is located there. mysettopbox.tv is still up and running at OSUOSL. We plan to transition everything to Paxio and use a VM at OSUOSL to mirror the package repos.

LinHES R7.00.03 Beta Release

Added by brfransen about 6 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.

PCS-2 External edition

Added by jams over 6 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.
