Windows 7 RC has already been out for some time, but I have only recently started discovering the changes since the public beta. I wrote a longer introduction to Windows 7 when I got the hands on the beta. The introduction is still worth reading. Also information about DVB-T and HDTV seems to be some of the topics that are most interesting for my readers. Get yourself a cup of coffee and read the rest of this article. […] Continue reading →

Windows 7

It’s two months since I got the first introduction to Windows 7 (code named Vienna) at Microsoft Tech-Ed 2008 in Barcelona, and this week Microsoft released a public beta of their next client operating system. I have installed it on my MacBook Pro, and plan to install it on an office machine in AD and on my home machine. I have been using Windows Vista for about 3 years now, through some of the betas and later with the released product. At the department where I am the sysadmin, more […] Continue reading →

It’s about 10 days left to RiksTV is to officially launch (Sept. 1 2007), and the world’s three first MPEG-4 decoders are appearing on the Internet: Grundig DTR8720 Grundig DTR8740 with MHP and MemoryStick Sagem ITD81-HD As you can see, the more expensive decoder from Grundig is the one to buy, as it is the only one with support for the Text-TV standard MHP and with MemoryStick for recording a TV show. But only MHP (Multimedia Home Platform) is important, PVR decoders with […] Continue reading →


Please get your coffee cup before you start reading this blog entry, cause this is a longer one… Introduction I haven’t been playing with DVB-T for a while, and when Marcus Overhagen open-sourced his DVB-T work to the Haiku-OS project, I wanted to see how the test broadcasts where coming along in Norway. I knew that Norway was not to use MPEG-2, but instead go for H.264 (MPEG-4). It turned out that NTV already had switched their test broadcasts from the Tryvann antenna to the […] Continue reading →
