swentel writes "In our quest for total world domination we're almost at the first step: releasing our first own ISO.

But what about conquering Japan ? We put our heads together and had an interesting IRC-discussion I might say. The plan is simple: KARAOKE.

We *must* have a karaoka-application on the system. But how would we implement this ? There is a plugin for XMMS that cuts out the channel on which most voices are mixed, but it's not that effective.
You can also just collect mp3's from all songs without voices and import them in DAD and have a special flag for karaoke... But how do we manage the lyrics and so on ?

So we need links, ideas and (we can dream can't we) people who also like this and want to help out !"

Heh, rock :)
I'll get started on writing GStreamer plug-ins for text overlay and stuff. Anybody want to code a bouncing ball ?

 VCRCRON Screenshots
Video Posted by thomas on Wednesday, January 08 @ 21:19:35 CET (29195 reads)

Time for some screenshots. Over the weekend I spent quite some time packaging dependencies for Kristof's cool vcrcron. It gets tv listings from EuroTV and parses them. The web interface allows you to browse through channels and schedule recordings once, weekly, or daily.

Of course, every recorded program is directly viewable on the Dave/Dina box as well as on the network.

See below for shots.
