After some "discussion" about the old MCP server, the admin team has moved this server to a new home. My old homepage is also back now. But the cotent is still the same old thing... Albeit also available over IPv6, for a change.
While researching media center PC's, I needed DVB-T channel and stream IDs for Luxembourg. While channel info is readily available, the details of the MPEG-2 Transport Streams are not... and you need those for manual tuning.
I'm spending most of my free time hacking around on various linux projects. This is mostly about running Linux/PPC on my PowerMac 7500 and on my TiBook.
A quick selection of Macintosh-related Linux links:
I would like to watch TV under Linux as well ;-)
Starting with version 2.2.8, PlanB is part of the official Linux kernel sources. However, the version in the kernel sources needs some overhaul. I suggest applying patches.
The patches are updated for the most recent kernel versions (2.4.16 kernel.org and 2.4.17-pre1 (benh's tree) ).
Later 2.4 kernels should not need patches. 2.6 kernels were never supported, and PlanB has been marked "broken" and later removed. By now (2013), that's really not a problem anymore, there are many far superior Linux video solutions available, and I don't expect anybody to still run a 7x00 PowerMac.
This is not kept up-to-date regularly, and serves mostly my own purpose.
