I want to keep my FreeBSD running.
Freevo works nice for me. It runs its own webserver which shows tv guide
and available musik/videos/other stuff. The tv guide has a 'record'
option so the you can schedule recording. It's starting up into X and
has a multimedia center-like GUI. Currently I can use it for music
playback but I'd really like to get the digital TV up and running, too.
