  1. I saw that you were installing Feisty Fawn in Parallels? I couldn’t get it done (I’m a noob to Mac, Linux and Parallels). Any insight from the master?

  2. Here’s a guide that may help:
    http://www.simplehelp.net/2006/09/18/how-to-install-ubuntu-in-os-x-using-parallels-a-complete-walkthrough/

    Some of the screenshots are out of date, but the basics are there. I had to select the Parallels “OS Tye” as Solaris and the “OS Version” as Other Solaris when setting up and installing Ubuntu. After the Ubuntu installation was done, and I did the reboot of Ubuntu I needed to stop the Parallels VM, change the OS Type to Linux and the OS Version to Other Linux kernal 2.6. Then start the VM and Ubuntu booted up fine.

    Hope this helps,

  3. Hey man,

    I have some questions about your DVR setup, as I am constructing my own… Can you please read my post over at BYOPVR.com, and give me some feedback.

    Also, do you have the ability to record 6x analog at once? Can you post some pics of your working rig?

    I’m sure I’ll have more questions about your rig as I go on, please get in touch with me on the forums.

    Thanks,
    Petch
