We had a great visit with the folks at Boxee. Their offices in New York were a beehive of activity. We should expect great things from them.
We were able to demo the Myka ION for them. They loved it. We are getting a pre-production Myka ION ready for them to test. They are very eager to have many 'Boxee Enabled' devices on the market. We actually have an opportunity to be the first one out of the gate.
Watch for more announcements.....

We just announced Myka ION. It's based on work we have been doing for our private network customers. We felt it would really rock in the consumer world. After getting some feed back from the forums we decided to go ahead and commit to production.
This machine is a blast. You should see it run Boxee. Details are up on the website.

With our customs issues behind us, myka is in stock and shipping. We've added a new disk drive size - 500 GB. New software has some nifty features.
In a previous life I was with an internet direct marketing company. We ran a number of viral marketing campaigns. On of our largest was emailing David Lettermans top 10 list. That campaign reached into the millions.
We've decided to try a twitter viral campaign. We are giving away FLIP cameras. The way you enter the drawing is to simply create a tweet with #mykatv anywhere in that tweet.
More info is HERE.
We'll see how it goes.

We had a scare last week. We got a call from our shipper saying the latest batch of Myka's have been seized by customs for an IPR violation. YIKES!! It took us almost two weeks to resolve the issues (did you know that customs agents work the graveyard shift). See the port labeled HDMI on the back of Myka

Haven't had much time to blog recently. We've been working on our first private network. Well, we did it. Closed our first one. I can't release the details. I can say it is sports related.

- Completely customizable user interface. Your network, your brand.
- Content subscription services. Automatically send shows to your customers.
- Custom case (with a minimum of 100 units).
- Easy to add functionality

We have been working on ways to provide access to both Netflix and Hulu. NetFlix does not publish their device API unless you are a major CE player. We're not there, yet.
We have been working with technology from a company called Media Mall. Their product is called PLAYON.
It works great. I'm able to watch NetFlix movies and full shows from Hulu. Myka renders the video stunningly well on a HD screen.
A few issues:
- Your network has to be up to snuff. 802.11/G won't cut it. You need to be N or wired.
- Your PC has to be moderately beefy. The PLAYON specs need to be looked at.
- It does require that your PC be on and running the PLAYON server.
All that having been said, it's very nice. You have access to all the full episodes on HULU. Checkout the CBS/Classic TV/Star Trek. Anything that let's me watch Star Trek is a good thing.
There is a free trial and then a one time fee.
We'll be posting this to the main site with instructions in the next little while.
