- TyStudio “is a GPL’ed set of tools for extracting, editing, and converting of tivo tystreams to standard video/audio formats. This is done without re-encoding, so its a rather fast process. TyStudio is also entirely standards based; Every component of tystudio can be substituted with your favorite third party software (except tydemux of course).” Does this work with Series 2 tivos?

It’s not the One True solution, as Edd put it, but it’s a start. Ideally I’d like to use drivers that were GPL’d/LGPL’d and incorporated into Wlan-ng or the kernel source. The licensing of these drivers also concerns me a bit:
* Linuxant is happy to provide free trial DriverLoader licenses, while discussions are under way with hardware vendors to finance development costs. Linuxant hopes that DriverLoader will remain free for end-users.
This is definately a great product, and very useful, as there are bajillions of Broadcom chipsets out there in the wild. I’ll definately be keeping an eye on this and other 802.11g Linux projects.
The Inquirer has two interesting articles from the Microprocessor Forum in San Jose. The first is a good roundup. No major announcements from Intel or AMD, but it covers Transmeta’s Efficeon, IBM’s Power5, and the Fujitsu SPARC64 VI.
They also show a picture of an 8 way power5 MCM with a total of 144MB of cache. That’s a monster!
