Using Mythweb and DLNA in place of a MythTV Frontend

In this video, I detail using Mythweb to schedule recordings and DLNA to view them on a smart TV. I contemplated releasing this because I wasn’t happy with the quality but I haven’t had time to make a better version.

Raspberry Pi Boot from USB Drive (see Description)

In this video, I talk about USB drive options to use with a Raspberry Pi and I do an overview of configuring a Pi to boot from a USB drive. In the video, I install Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on a Raspberry Pi 2. This also works with Raspbian which will work on a Raspberry Pi 1 or 2.

NOTE: An SD card is still required because the Raspberry Pi doesn’t have a traditional BIOS and thus stores initial boot information on the SD card. See https://www.raspberrypi.org/help/faqs/ and look for “13. HOW DOES IT BOOT?”.
