Alright, so in my moms new house there is no way to run cable upstairs, and she isn't interested in drilling a hole in her floors. So my plan was to do it over the network(wireless N).
The HOW of it has me a bit confused though, I'm not entirely sure what hardware is good(need a tuner) nor do I know what software to use. Something that did catch my eye was Mythbuntu, and it DOES look good. So, each frontend has to be a pc, but does it need to be MUCH of a pc? Would an Atom or VIA board work just fine for one of these?
Also, what sort of control do the frontends have? Cause I use a remote like the one I have for Windows MCE?
If anyone has any advice I would greatly appreciate it, as well as a general idea of how the quality will be streamed over the network.
PS I want to have the ability to add multiple computers to this setup, so a dual tuner is a must(doesnt need to be HD though, we just have a standard set top box), if possible I want as many as 4 video streams at any one time.
