Yahoo has released a beta of Yahoo Go TV, but only for US people. At the moment it is Meedio with a few Yahoo plugins, a new theme and renamed files 🙂
It will be interesting to see how this evolves. How open will they keep it? Will they make proper EPGs for Europe? etc…
Do you draw your own pictures?
Yes. Haven’t done any serious drawing since the age of 14, but lately I have had fun drawing childish figures on paper and colour them in Photoshop. Like this cartoon:

Have you tested this one?
It might be a special design for a certain pc, but anyway?

ForstÃ¥r ikke dette helt! Betyr det at tv-kortet (Hauppauge PVR500) ikke vil virke nÃ¥r bakkenettet er oppe Ã¥ gÃ¥r?
Eirik, hva har du Ã¥ si til dette? Jobber bl.a. NRK for Ã¥ gjÃ¸re kortet mitt ubrukelig?
Today there are two ways of providing the analogue tuner in a PVR-500 with a signal.
1. From an analogue terrestrial network
2. From an analogue cable network
When the analogue terrestrial network is shut down you will not be able provide your PVR-500 from an antenna on your roof anymore. If you have analogue cable you will be able to provide your PVR-500 with a signal as long as they keep distributing that analogue signal. At some point all of this will be digital and your old PVR-500 will be obsolete.
However, you will be able to connect a digital set top box to the composite or S-video connectors on the PVR-500.
And, it’s not the NRK that drives this progress. It’s the general technical progression that we see all over. The analogue compact cassette is obsolete. The LP is obsolete. Analogue 35 mm film for cameras is obsolite etc…
