What open source media center software can I use on Raspberry Pi?

Episode 1306 (1:07:28)

Clinton from Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Raspberry Pi

Clinton has a minivan with a DVD player and HDMI ports. He got an ATSC converter and an $8 antenna from Amazon so he can get over the air broadcasts. Now he wants to use his Raspberry Pi as a media center. He'll probably want to run OSMC, the Open Source Media Center, which is designed for Raspberry Pi. It's based on the old Xbox Media Center. Raspberry Pi doesn't have any way to capture video, though, so he'll need to find a way to do that.

Clinton also wants to know if he can configure it and resell it. Leo says he can absolutely do that, and often times that's the business model for open source software.
