After the successful DVB-T test, we decided to release a first prototype, for the Raspberry Pi environment, on the project website. This prototype already contains a lot of useful functions and allows users to watch TV, but it also has certain limitations that have to be fixed before it is ready for the masses. Therefore, we consider the release as a technology preview.
It should be noted that this prototype only supports MPEG-2 and thus a license required to use the software on the Raspberry. Experimental support for H.264 is available in the code but is not fully tested yet.
The major items on the to-do list are the lip-sync issue and the ability to control the application with an infrared (IR) receiver. At least the first issue prevents real user satisfaction and needs to be addressed before we can make a public release.
