Plans and dreams for the future
plans (apart from watching TV):
MPEG2 streaming/recording (already done) and multicasting via network
100% remote controllable via Network (ssh, telnet, custom stuff)
playing mp3s from your win/linux computer via the box (over network of
mp3 decoding needs no fpu!
controlling all infrared-controllable devices via the box (VCRs, TVs,
(a linux based advertisements-blocker is yet finished - can pause streaming
or the VCR)
auto-detection and destruction of all sorts of manipulated smartcards,
goldwafers, emulators and related devices
playing DOOM (1/2) on the Framebuffer with the remote-control (is already
possible! really !)
Internet-access for channellist/firmware -updates (maybe we get a PID on
hotbird for firmware-updates via SAT)
browsing the Internet with the box via builtin webbrowser
(yes Infrared-keyboards work)
So when will be release-time ?
We don't yet know!
We're quite fast :) We did all this stuff up to today in 3-4 weeks
only (including hacking the bootloader etc.) !
How will the soft be released ?
SOURCE CODE! GPL except some cam-related stuff probably
