Media PC

Hiper HMC-2K53AThis is a dedicated Digital TV recording computer running Fedora Linux and MythTV. All this is built in the Hiper HMC-2K53A-H2 chassis.

The following can be done with the Media PC at the moment:

  • MythTV options out of the box.
    • Watch and record DVB-C digital TV broadcast. This includes DVB-C subtitles.
    • Archive the recordings.
    • View the Electronic Program Guide.
    • Set the recordings and view the EPG through a web.

This is what needs to be improved:

  • Front panel display at Hiper HMC-2K53A does not work. There are no Linux drivers.
  • Add more tuners. At the moment only one channel can be viewed or recorded.
  • PSU fans are a bit noisy for the sensitive people. The computer runs fairly hot. However, the EE series AMD processor does a nice job with the supplied cooler.
