Thanks

Great review. I appreciated the honesty, showing the good and the bad. The product seems well designed, and I found the "open hardware" concept interesting, though I confess that would be outside my expertise. Plus, thanks for not offering a dry, lame review. This was funny and entertaining as well. I hope Linux posts more of these video. I'll keep coming back just to watch the reviewer!

Very Entertaining

That review was funny and interesting. I wish I had known of a product like that when I worked for a public school. People constantly asked me to convert one type of media to another. At least it's good to know people think the IT guy can do anything.

Great video Shawn, save the fan it will be a collector item when you are famous.

As JZA mentioned on an earlier post, the open source Neuros OSD will be a better tool to record content for playback on a TV.
Recorder also have great electronic components
Neuros MPEG4 Recorder 2 is really meant to be used to get content for viewing on a small screen (iPod, PSP, Smartphone).

Me?

Nah, I need to keep the fan around, because once it gets famous, I'll make is support me. I mean, that cool, quiet stare? Stand back Eastwood, there's a new square jaw in town.

Shawn-

This Johan from Neuros. Nice review!

I wanted to point out that the Neuros MPEG4 Recorder 2 is really meant to be used to get content for viewing on a small screen (iPod, PSP, Smartphone). As JZA mentioned on an earlier post, the open source Neuros OSD will be a better tool to record content for playback on a TV.

So I showed my youth group kids the review last night, and asked for their feedback. The only response I got was the that the brown background made me look bald. :)

I assured the young lady that it was the lack of hair that made me look bald, and not the background -- but I I thanked her anyway. :)

Neuros OSD

I have a neuros OSD, I would love to see a video on the OSD since it's really an Apple TV before there was an AppleTV without the restrictions.

Great Idea

That would be great. I'll see if we can get one to review. Are you happy with the OSD? (Just curious)

As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.
