    Convinced a friend of mine to buy the MXQ Pro android box on the weekend, and I even helped him set it up. This morning he called his cable provider and cut the cord

    does anyone here use MythTv software on their pc?

    I have my digital antenna hooked to my tv, TV is hooked to my pc via hdmi.


    would MythTv work as a dvr for me with this setup?

    I wrote about Kodi earlier. I have been able to get an even cheaper solution. I bought myself a Raspberry Pi 3 (on a separate topic, if you have kids who are genuinely interested in learning about computers, this Ph.D. person right here cannot recommend this computer enough). I loaded it with OpenElec, and voila, I have a $50 home theatre system that I built myself.

    Very, very cool.

    so i was at the cogeco store at limeridge mall, went to update my internet package. the girl told me they were having a promotion for 2 months FREE movie channels including HBO canada. all i have to do is remember to cancel 1 or 2 days before the 2 months is over. ;-)
    not sure how long this offer is good for.

    Have a look at your account online... I dont know about Cogeco but with Bell you can setup any channel change order (including channel deletions) in advance to occur on a set date. (ie: the day of/before your free trial ends). I do this everytime I sign up for the free/discounted periods so I don't forget.

    That's better for you to get rid of cable if you do not watch TV often. Internet is enough for me and may be for you.lol
