Given that DVB-T starts with D, this list should be interested ;-) I appreciate that with the rise of Internet feed television, few people are interested in DVB-T. On the other hand there are a large number of people still using DVB-T, including me. I have no idea what the Windows and OSX systems of choice are, but in the Linux-verse MythTV is the market leader. Except that this is for home entertainment systems, is heavyweight and requires MySQL. My use of DVB-T requires a lightweight client. VLC is not that client – you have to be turned on by calculating the frequencies and bandwidths of the channel you want to watch, manually. All this led me to Me-TV, which is exactly what I want, but is sadly a programmer-less project. Sadly it is also written in C++, using Autotools. I am very close to signing up to develop this project, and would love to do this as D+GtkD – switching what is currently a Gtk+2 system to Gtk+3. If there was someone or some people who could chip in support and some effort then I think we can volunteer to take this on and create Me-TV 3.0.0 as a D+GtkD system. The current Me-TV user base don't really care about how it is implemented, just that it works. I am in contact with the person who has valiantly been keeping the project going without development support, and I am sure that if a few programmer types chipped in an hour here and an hour there so as to get a new version of Me-TV in place he would be a very happy person. -- Russel. ============================================================================= Dr Russel Winder t: +44 20 7585 2200 voip: sip:russel.winder ekiga.net 41 Buckmaster Road m: +44 7770 465 077 xmpp: russel winder.org.uk London SW11 1EN, UK w: www.russel.org.uk skype: russel_winder
