SAT>IP vs. natives DVB-S2 und TVHeadend vs. VDR

Gestern Abend wollte ich eigentlich den dritten SAT>IP Converter (das zweite Austauschgerät) von Triax ausprobieren, eigentlich, doch so weit kam es gar nicht. Aber ich fange einmal von vorne an ;)

SAT>IP Konfiguration

SAT>IP ist ja generell eine gute Sache, wenn man es denn erstmal konfiguriert hat. Bis dahin kann es aber Umständen ein relativ weiter Weg sein. Hier schreibe ich über die Stolpersteine, die mir im Weg lagen und (leider) noch liegen.

Great photo blogs

In the last two months, I’ve been trying to work with Linux for all the stuff that I do. I will write another post later on about how Linux works for me as a desktop (or not).

So here are simply a few links to four blogs I’ve stumbled upon and can’t recommend enough to look at, if you’re into photography, maybe especially street.
