Freevo is a Linux application that turns a PC with a TV capture card and/or TV-out into a standalone multimedia jukebox/VCR/PVR/HTPC. It uses MPlayer or Xine to play and record audio and video. It is optimized for use with a TV+remote.
Freevo version 1.7.6 and 1.8.0rc2 have been released.
For release 1.7.6 you can still use the existing kaa modules that are available on SourceForge.
For release 1.8.0 you will need the very latest kaa packages, yet to be released or the latest SVN version.
Additions to local_conf include:
ENCODINGSERVER_SAVE_DIR for re-encoded DVDs
TV_CHANNELS_COMPARE as a lambda to sort the channels
The ENCODINGSERVER settings have been removed
No variable have been renamed, this time ;-)
