Many of the members over at AVS need a proper place to discuss homebrew, firmware, networking, etc... Instead of creating a new community, we could help this one grow.  Many of the questions there are causing the thread to be very difficult to follow. I am sure people like Zorander, b-rad.cc, 3dxr, as well as all the other members of AVS would appreciate it. Thanks for considering.

Hello everyone...

I think this is a good idea, because the "custom firmware" is really improving our WDTV with features like LAN or DVD suport...

Yea, it'd allow us to open separate threads for specific problems and solutions, and still have an announcement thread for each homegrown distro.

Heh the thread over at AVS is indeed getting a bit tedious, it be nice to have something a little more focused.

Yes, now we can have separate threads for each topic.  It will be a lot easier to follow.

Would be cool, especially if separate sticky threads were started for various issues that come up like setting up a NFS server or using wireless USB LAN adapters.

Not worries there Zorander!  Those are the kinds of problems I like to have!
