TV Anniversary

5 years ago today I first started running MythTV, an open-source home DVR solution.  So I’m running my own computer instead of leasing a box from the cable company.  Sure, there have been hiccups and maintenance headaches, but overall I much prefer having the personal control over my recordings.  In the statistics above you’ll see that I recorded 659 episodes of The Simpsons during the FX Network’s Every Simpsons Ever marathon, which took up 1.5TB of disk space.  Try doing that with your cable box!  (Full disclosure – I held onto them for probably a year before I deleted them because I needed the space)
