Tired of your current DVR? Prefer to DIY? If so, please join us for Michael Still's upcoming presentation on Practical MythTV . Michael, one of Google's Site Reliability Engineers and MythTV developer, will be joining us on Thursday, August 16th, to discuss this powerful, open source personal video recording software. Michael will also discuss some of the current challenges with obtaining television guide data in the United States and highlight some forthcoming features.

Doors open at 6:30 PM at our Mountain View campus; guests should plan to sign in at Building 43 reception upon arrival. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome and encouraged to attend.
