I have yet again set up MythTV on Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron. It wasn’t as easy or running as well as my previous install on the same machine but with and older version of Ubuntu.

Now that I have moved out of home, it has given me more reason to set up and use MythTV because I don’t have Sky+ or anything similar. I do plan to eventually get a dedicated MythTV box(es) but it’s a good time to play about now ready for when this happens. I have set up MythWeb, an extension? addon? to MythTV. It runs on the backend with a web server and allows access to TV listings, status and recording management. The idea is to let allow remote management from another computer to view, add / remove and modify recordings as well as view and search TV listings.

There are additional modules in the web interface like the weather, music, MythTV settings and backend status. MythWeb reminds of Webmin but much prettier.

All of this is password protected and must be enabled pass the router firewall before it is viewable from the Internet.
