I've finally gone and done it. I've purchased a new mac mini for an upstairs MythTV frontend. MythTV runs well on Mac OS X so I figured I'd give it a shot. I've never experienced anything quite as easy as this. The Mac Mini is the *perfect* MythTV frontend. I've unboxed (always fun with Apple products), plugged it in, gone through initial Leopard setup, and downloaded the precompiled dmg from. I have my backend broadcasting itself as a UPnP Media Server, so when I fired up Mythfrontend.app on the mac for the first time, it found it right away.
Now onto the next steps • I streamed HD over 802.11n in the same room as the router, I need a real-world test upstairs • The apple remote worked out of the box, but only has six buttons. The nice thing about MythTV is you can remap the buttons, but six. Just not quite enough. I'll need to find out if there is another remote that can work. I might go down the lirc path Bottom Line This was such a pleasant experience and the mini is soooooooooo silent that I'm counting the days until my monstrous 4 year old media PC dies in the family room! Another project might be to figure out what the most compatible tuner's are for a mac and kill my loud backend in the office.
I've been impressed with MythTV on a Mac OS X. I hope to write some apple friendly applescripts/automator actions to do some fun things that I've been dying to do. 10 comments: Anonymous said. 5:30 PM How does it work with various HD content? 4:35 PM Very well so far. I'm at a bit of a roadblock for moving it upstairs for it's permanent home for two reasons: 1) no s-video out for the mac-mini (not even with the 'proper' dongle') 2) 802.11n performance for HD isn't quite there yet when I move too far from the router.
But over the wire, hooked up to my HDTV in the family room it runs HD *very* smoothly. Appstore adobe comp cc for mac. Anonymous said. 8:51 PM what is the cold boot up time to being able to use it for watching TV and movies? 6:01 AM Good question.
I leave the mini running 24x7 and it suspends itself after 30 minutes of inactivity, the resume from suspend is almost instantaneous. If I get a chance, the next time I boot it, I'll time it (along with how long it takes to fire up MythTV). Free games to download on mac.

PelicanHPC is an iso-hybrid (CD or USB) image that let's you set up a high performance computing cluster in a few minutes. A Pelican cluster allows you to do parallel computing using MPI. You can run Pelican on a single multiple core machine to use all cores to solve a problem, or you can network multiple computers together to make a cluster. The frontend node (either a real computer or a virtual machine) boots from the image. The compute nodes boot by PXE, using the frontend node as the server.
