ffreTv-backend was forked from upstream mythtv
ffretv-backend is in transition from Linux--->
NetBSD & FreeBSD
*The Current Hardware Reference Platform is the RaspberryPi2 on NetBSD 7(armv7hf)
*tuner Hardware will be limited to network devices only at first. *Perhaps more later.
"Arm" is the only arch I'm interested in working on for this backend project.
Plenty of others are working on intel/amd x86/64.
I will switch/use or upgrade to whatever ARM reference hardware with low power , that works best for this projects design goals.
Current Intentions/Design Goals:
-Remote and/or Rural usage scenarios.
-Designed for OFFLINE USE. EIT/Embedded Scheduling only. No network connection needed.
-Solar Power Design assembly model.
-Ultra Low Power (2-10Watt Range @5vdc)
-Solid State Storage only.
-HDTV -ATSC Over The Air (OTA) Specific*with planning for DVB-T as ATSC updates
- Stable Base Build that doesn't change too often.
- Network Device Only Support such as iptv/hdhr.
- Offline/Disconnected use with EIT Schedule data OTA.
- Lightweight/Minimalist Embedded Code selection and configuration
