Boxee Remote for the IPhone/Ipod Touch!!

A new application has been released for the Ipod Touch and the Iphone.  A Boxee Media Center remote control application that in my opinion is CRISPY!!!!  The application which is currently available through the App store on your device can be downloaded for free and gives you control over any Boxee media center you may have running on your LAN.  The performance is great and there is no noticeable lag time in issuing commands. Here’s how it works.

Hava Player Nokia N800/810 Beta

The Beta release of the Hava Nokia N800/810 software is out and it is GOOD.  On May 8th, Monsoon released their TV streaming software for the N800/810 to a group of beta testers for further testing. The results from the group appear to be good.  I got my hands on this software as part of the beta  program and I am very pleased.


Hava Platinum HD

Hava HD is a Ethernet device for streaming your TV signal across your network to your PC. Don’t have a TV in your kitchen,  drop your laptop on the counter and fire up your Hava Player.  The software gives you full motion video and audio along with a software based remote control to control your Tivo, Sat box, or VCR (who has one of those still).  I have played with this some over the past 3 weeks and so far I am pleasantly surprised.  Video and audio on the local LAN is superb and set-up was fairly straight forward.  The kicker for this device over the popular Slingbox is that Monsoon is developing a client for the Nokia Internet Tablet (N800/810).  The software is out for beta testing this week.  More on that later.


Full MythTv Frontend on the N810

Yes folks, we have all dreamed of it and it may soon be reality.  There is a semi-functional Mythtv Frontend, in alpha, built for the Nokia Internet Tablet.  With MythTv moving towards QT4 someone has ported the front end over to OS 2008.  It is not completely functional as of now but, it looks to be a good start.  Currently there is a port in works for the front end and back end.  Check out the teasers after the “click”.


MythTv Remote on your N800/N810

Lirc being a pain?  Does your favorite universal remote NOT work with your new myth box. Mythetomer is a remote control application for your N800 or N810 to control your MythTv.  Mythetomer uses your WLAN or Bluetooth to make a connection to your Myth Frontend for full control.  No cables, no hours of configuring key mappings to remote codes and no IR learning. No IR at all.  Software available from Mythetomer website, links available after the “click”.
