Here is a comparisation between the original d-Box-2-software
"Betanova" and the Linux-Software:
So in the end, the linux software is almost unusable at the moment, because
you can't just zap and watch TV.|
You know, these linux guys never see what we REALLY need, they just implement stupid things like DOOM etc., and they still haven't made any real GUI.
SHAME ON THEM!
In my eyes nobody will need the features they offer. we all just want to watch tv, you know, because that's what the dbox was made for and for what we paid.
I heard, you even need a PC always running to use the linux-software! You even have to type in (!!) the names of the programs you want to watch, using a cryptic "pzap"-program.
I even heard that you have to SHORTCUT something while the installation!
In my eyes, don't even think of risking your dbox for such a stupid project!BetaResearch is working hard of improving the software for our needs. In some weeks or so it'll be ready and it will be better than anything else made by these "hackers".
