MythTV
is a free and open-source home entertainment application with a simplified "10-foot user interface" design for the living-room TV. It turns a computer with the necessary hardware into a network streaming[1] digital video recorder, a digital multimedia home entertainment system, or home theater personal computer.[2] It can be considered a free and open-source alternative to TiVo[3] or Windows Media Center. It runs on various operating systems, primarily Linux, macOS, and FreeBSD.[4]Contents1 History 2 Features2.1 HDTV support 2.2 Modules3 Operating systems3.1 Bundles4 See also 5 References 6 External linksHistory[edit] The MythTV

Software Developer
A software developer is a person concerned with facets of the software development process, including the research, design, programming, and testing of computer software. Other job titles which are often used with similar meanings are programmer, software analyst, and software engineer. According to developer Eric Sink, the differences between system design, software development, and programming are more apparent. Already in the current market place there can be found a segregation between programmers and developers, being that one who implements is not the same as the one who designs the class structure or hierarchy. Even more so that developers become software architects or systems architects, those who design the multi-leveled architecture or component interactions of a large software system.[1] In a large company, there may be employees whose sole responsibility consists of only one of the phases above

Software Release Life Cycle
A software release life cycle is the sum of the stages of development and maturity for a piece of computer software: ranging from its initial development to its eventual release, and including updated versions of the released version to help improve software or fix software bugs still present in the software.Contents1 History 2 Stages of development2.1 Pre-alpha 2.2 Alpha 2.3 Beta2.3.1 Open and closed beta2.4 Release candidate3 Release3.1 Release to manufacturing (RTM) 3.2 General availability (GA) 3.3 Release to web (RTW)4 Support4.1 End-of-life5 See also 6 References 7 BibliographyHistory[edit] Usage of the "alpha/beta" test terminology originated at IBM. As long ago as the 1950s (and probably earlier), IBM used similar terminology for their hardware development. "A" test was the verification of a new product before public announcement. "B" test was the verification before releasing the product to be manufactured

Advanced Television Systems Committee
(ATSC) standards are a set of standards for digital television transmission over terrestrial, cable, and satellite networks. It is largely a replacement for the analog NTSC

standard, and like that standard, used mostly in the United States, Mexico

and Canada. Other former users of NTSC, like Japan, have not used ATSC

ATSC
standards were developed in the early 1990s by the Grand Alliance, a consortium of electronics and telecommunications companies that assembled to develop a specification for what is now known as HDTV. The standard is now administered by the Advanced Television Systems Committee. The standard includes a number of patented elements, and licensing is required for devices that use these parts of the standard

QAM (television)
QAM is a digital television standard using quadrature amplitude modulation. It is the format by which digital cable channels are encoded and transmitted via cable television providers. QAM is used in a variety of communications systems such as Dial-up modems and WiFi. In cable systems, a QAM tuner is linked to the cable in a manner that is equivalent to an ATSC tuner
ATSC tuner
which is required to receive over-the-air (OTA) digital channels broadcast by local television stations when attached to an antenna. Most new HDTV digital televisions support both of these standards. QAM uses the same 6 MHz bandwidth as ATSC, using a standard known as ITU-T Recommendation J.83 Annex B ("J.83b").[1][2] Technical details[edit] QAM is a modulation format and does not specify the format of the digital data being carried

LinuxTV
The LinuxTV project is an informal group of volunteers who develop software related to digital television for the Linux operating system. The community develops and maintains the DVB driver subsystem which is part of the Linux 2.6.x kernel. The Linux kernel and the LinuxTV CVS include a fair number of drivers for commonly available PCI cards and USB devices, but the DVB subsystem core is also targeted towards Linux based set-top boxes. The LinuxTV project was originally initiated by the Berlin, Germany based company Convergence Integrated Media GmbH with the goal to distribute free and open source software for the production, distribution and reception of digital television

H.264
H.264 or MPEG-4 Part 10, Advanced Video Coding ( MPEG-4 AVC) is a block-oriented motion-compensation-based video compression standard. As of 2014[update] it is one of the most commonly used formats for the recording, compression, and distribution of video content.[1] It supports resolutions up to 8192×4320, including 8K UHD.[2] The intent of the H.264/AVC project was to create a standard capable of providing good video quality at substantially lower bit rates than previous standards (i.e., half or less the bit rate of MPEG-2, H.263, or MPEG-4 Part 2), without increasing the complexity of design so much that it would be impractical or excessively expensive to implement
