Has anyone worked out a method for getting RTV video onto a RIM Blackberry 8100 "Pearl"? I am considering getting one of these, but I have noticed that the video format is some stange proprietary format called GP3.
I found it. Had to dig a bit over at SourceForge. For those who are interested:
Unfortunately, there appears to be an incompatibility with my Linux system ([K]ubuntu Breezy). I get the following error when I try to run it:
./XRTVPatch: relocation error: ./XRTVPatch: symbol errno, version GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file libc.so.6 with link time reference
I suspect it might have to do with a kernel...
I have been Googling to find where to download XRTVPatch to no avail. I have some USB drive enclosures hooked up to my Linux box and I want to create a 5K disk (my 5200 drive just died) without having to reboot into the linux floppy version of RTVPatch.
Anybody know where I can get it?
Posts like the one above make me glad I am running my mission critical apps (like DVA) on a Linux box. Rock solid and no worry about viruses and spyware. God bless all those OSS gurus out there diligently coding away from their mothers' basements.
Fry's in Houston is selling the Slingbox for $150. Is it worth picking one up for this price? I am planning to get a SmartPhone at some point in the future and the idea of streaming Replay content to the phone whilst on the go is an attractive one.
Any Slingers care to weigh in?
Here is one reason to keep your Replays around:
DVArchive! I remember when my son was born. I loaded up the old laptop with several episodes of Star Trek: TNG --my wife's favorite show- to keep her entertained while she recuperated in the hospital.
Try doing something like that with your cable company's DVR. Also, try scheduling something to record over the internet while you are away from home and it is about to start in 10 minutes.
For me, down-converted HD...
Does the stream encryption cause issues with any of the mobile viewing clients (PDA, cell phone, etc.)? I would think that there is certainly a performance hit when using encryption. Anyone care to comment?

It isn't HD, but it is good enough given that I can watch it when I want and skip what I want. Plus, I can burn the kids shows to CD-R's for our car's DVD player. If I can't do these things, I'm not really interested in anything else.
Hear, hear! When...
