Please note shortly into the install documents

If you do not have a preference, Ubuntu 16.04 is the most tested, and will probably go the smoothest.

So make sure that you adjust for potential issues accordingly.

Purchase these two items and you have the hardware you need to take your Home “Smart TV” to the next level.

 

You can cast and/or remotely control this setup from your Android, iPhone and others and “cut the cable bill”.

This is just a lightweight solution to get your started on your pathway to Freedom and Independence as an Empowered Prosumer.

If you want to fire it up fresh out of the Box, we highly recommend getting a Linux distribution installed on your MicroSDXC card.

Re-using technology for longer…

This Original XBox (mine is Moddied) and

Original XBOX

using something like

XBMC4Xbox is a free and open source media player software made solely for the first-generation Xbox video-game console. Other than the audio / video playback and media center functionality of XBMC4Xbox, it also has the ability to catalog and launch original Xbox games, and homebrew applications such as console emulators from the Xbox’s built-in harddrive.”

along with

XLink Kai: Evolution VII is a global gaming network, bringing together XBox users, PlayStation2, Gamecube, DS and PSP users to the one community. Whereas other tunnelling applications stick to their roots, at XLink, we like to think of ourselves as pioneers, breaking new boundaries and trying new things.

http://www.xbmc4xbox.org.uk/ is a great resource.

KODI, Emby and Plex look to be viable options. As always, choices to explore in the Open Source community. Just one of the many things happening in The Source Lab workshop.

Software to build…

in the virtual environment called OpenSimulator that we use and program, setup and maintain, you are being introduced to the world behind the places like InWorldz™ and SL® aka Second Life® 

Second Life Your World. Your Imagination.
Go to Second Life? http://www.secondlife.com

Those “places” are “wall gardens” (aka Closed platform) as they are known in the Free Libre, GNU, Open Source communities.

from Wikipedia A closed platform, walled garden or closed ecosystem[1][2] is a software system where the carrier or service provider has control over applications, content, and media, and restricts convenient access to non-approved applications or content. This is in contrast to an open platform, where consumers generally have unrestricted access to applications, content, and much more.

I am leaving you bread crumbs as you follow me through the process of getting the OpenSimulator up and running on a computer right here next to me 🙂
