A Leathal Combination: MythTV+RSS+BitTorrent

Can you imagine it?  Hundreds of clients out there recording shows and automatically sharing them on bittorrent?  Awesome!  Then having your client, when it detects a scheduling conflict, download the episode you want from bittorrent so that you can still watch it!  It would remove the need for multiple tuner support on one box because in a sense the network would become one huge multi-tuner system…

 

 

There has to be a way to make this happen.  TechnoD, we should get together this weekend and see if we can hash something together eh? 

In response to a post by Dave Winer, Matt Goyers says "So just think about what you could do with RSS, BitTorrent and a Media Center." I'm not sure why you'd use Media Center when MythTV is available. I suspect its just a matter of time until someone puts RSS+BitTorrent inside Myth TV. If I'd thought about it sooner, I'd have had my Networking class do it this semester for a final project.
