MediaTomb revisited

By | April 18, 2009

As I mentioned before, I keep coming back to MediaTomb, playing with it for a few hours and then going back to uShare.  Not this time.  For the last couple of days I’ve been reading a lot more on the MediaTomb wiki, particularly the scripting pages. I’m not sure why it wasn’t obvious to me before, but somehow… Read More »

FUPPES Revisited

By | April 14, 2009

So after a bit more Googling, I took another look at FUPPES.  The “release” (SVN-578) seems quite a bit more stable.  The version I was working with is SVN-634, which is the latest from the author’s subversion repository.  It still has the mostly the same pros and cons.  The stable version doesn’t automatically watch directories, though.  So the… Read More »

UPnP Media Servers

By | April 13, 2009

After doing quite a bit of research on media players in 2007, I convinced Jessica to get me a D-Link DSM-520 for Christmas that year. Since then, I’ve made most of our DVD collection and all of our music “on-demand”. Well, sort of. Things still have a long way to go in the whole “digital entertainment” arena. The… Read More »

Home Improvement – Nov 4, 2007

By | November 4, 2007

Woot! We finished Jessica’s room to the point where we moved her computer into it. We got the floor cleaned up and the baseboards put back on yesterday: Its somewhat disturbing to note that my wife matches her room. Pink on the top and bottom, black in between (posted with her permission, lest I be killed): And finally… Read More »

Home Improvement – Part 2

By | September 25, 2007

We got the first coat of paint on the walls on Sunday and the room immediately transformed, still no appropriate adjectives — Jessica says that her choices for colors escape description. Of course now she wants a theme song, too. Something that speaks to her personality. The Pinky and the Brain theme song comes closest for her, I… Read More »

Home Improvement – Part 1

By | September 23, 2007

Since we moved into our house back in early 2003, we’ve slowly but surely been redecorating rooms and fixing the place up. We’ve had a few people live with us in that time, and each time, Jessica has always sacrificed her space. The first time was her sister, who was escorted out by the Sheriff in handcuffs (thats… Read More »

MP3 Box Issues

By | January 1, 2006

Well, a few days ago Jessica started having problems with it. The box started locking up. Took a bit of effort to get it back online again (since its headless), three or four reboots before everything came back in. Not happy. My first guess is that it is heat related. The only fan in the unit is the… Read More »

MP3 Box v0.1

By | December 18, 2005

Its been a busy few weeks since my last posting. I spent a couple Sundays working on the web interface and the streaming interface. It still needs quite a bit of work, but it is very usable now. I “released” it for Jessica to use about a week and a half ago. Here is the software I ended… Read More »

MP3 Player base distribution update

By | November 24, 2005

So, I’ve been working on the MP3 player project quite a bit over the last few weeks. Christmas is a month away, so with the limited time I’ve got to work on it, I’d rather do that than post. The remote control that comes with the Allwell box doesn’t work. Well, it does, but they tried to be… Read More »

MP3 Player Update

By | October 17, 2005

Quick update on the MP3 player project. I spent several hours yesterday looking at cases, embedded systems, and got really, really frustrated. wholesale NFL jerseys The wholesale MLB jerseys Home Theater PC (HTPC) is just now starting to wholesale NFL jerseys catch on, but the manufacturers are charging way too much for a case. Granted, these are some… Read More »
