BeyondTV Version: 4.7.1 (Build 4376)

OK. For those of you who have known me for a while know that I dumped my Tivo on ebay about 4 years ago and went with BeyondTV from
They just put out a new beta (4.7.1 beta 2) and it has a new feature that I thought blogworthy...
There is a new rssfeed option built in as well as support for H.264 otherwise known as iTunes/iPod files. So now I can showsqueze my recordings directly to ipod format and still watch them from BeyondTV in the living room without having to keep them in regular mpeg format.

The other neat thing is that it supports podcasts... You can go to from iTunes and see all the recordings I have and even download them to watch on your iPod...

Way cool! Keep up the good work SnapStream dudes!

Launch Virtual Machine Console:Error

If you have a problem opening a remote console on a VM running on ESX hosts at a remote site try this fix....

The Doc ID at is 749640
The current working URL is: found here.

Even if you are not NATing between the sites, try it anyway. It worked for me.
Short version:
Log on to the ESX Server host's service console as root.

Edit /etc/vmware/config. Add the following line:

vmauthd.server.alwaysProxy = "TRUE"

Issue the following command to restart xinetd:

service xinetd restart
