I am planning to build a media center on a Linux box.
What I would like to do is:
- play local video files
- stream video from the net or local servers
- watch TV
- record from TV
As far as I know it should be possible to do this with a simple Ubuntu box with Xine and some very well known players.
So, should I bother about XBMC, MythTV, and such?
What would I miss if I did not?
thanks for your comments,
