OpenCable Receiver

**The attachment is better formatted and contains additional details and descriptions not included below**


Using a small embedded Linux device similar to the Roku media player, the final product will have the ability to watch and pause (up to 30 minutes) of encoded TV channels via the Ceton InfiniTV 6 ETH and the SiliconDust HDHomeRun Prime.

The primary goal is a TV tuner focusing around children. Safe, simple and manageable by parents with a busy life.

-Compatible with hardware, certifiable by CableLabs

Licensing System

-CableLabs requires each unit to receive a license for content


I am interested in the Raspberry Pi system which is simple, compact and already has a large community of developers. I would be adding a USB network adapter. Custom hardware may be required, please verify.

Expected Issues;

Currently, there are plugins to access copy-free channels via XBMC and MythTV. I want to get the device certified by CableLabs ($70,000 cost) and licensed which will allow access to additional programing. I have been unable to determine if CableLabs can certify equipment running on that hardware. CableLabs has never certified a Linux or Apple powered device and I have not been able to determine why.

Bids will only be accepted if the user meets the following requirements;
