But "CRT" versus "HD" is specifically talking about the TV set,
isn't it?  Unless by "most CRT television systems" it means Standard
Definition (there are plenty of SDTV LCD sets).  I don't really
understand this, so I'll leave it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PAL-NTSC-SECAM.svg - I've got:

  Please choose the TV standard to use. NTSC is used in North America,
  much of South America, and Japan; SECAM in France, the former USSR,
  and parts of Africa and the Middle East; and PAL elsewhere.

Maybe we need "note to translators: ethnocentrise to suit"!

I'm assuming the things with display titles are folders, the things
with file system paths are directories.

  Freevo can be started automatically when the machine boots, using a
  dedicated X server. Web, encoding, RSS, and recording servers can be
  launched at the same time.         

(Does this really mean you can choose to run a recording server
without choosing to start Freevo's "display server"?)

Home theater (en_US) is the best low-jargon description (displaying
multimedia files is just mplayer).  And the "offers [...] tools" is
a misunderstanding - it's built on them, but they're in the
dependencies.

"Classical audio" is Mozart; again, leave MPlayer to the
dependencies... wait, why is it a Depends if you can use Xine?

"Standalone" to me means "without other hardware plugged in".

 Description: home theater framework - binaries         
  Freevo is a Personal Video Recorder system for saving television    
  input to disk and playing it back. It can be used either for a
  dedicated PVR with a TV (plus remote) or on a regular desktop
  computer using the monitor and keyboard.

                          F

You know, this would all be a lot simpler if we stopped pussyfooting
around and said "it's a DFSG-compliant TiVo!"

Extra changes:

Insert Harvard comma.

(LIRC is no longer "Architecture: all" - will this take care of

> Description: multimedia files display framework - Lirc control

LIRC is an initialism, and this is a PIN-numberism.  This package is
basically a dependency package, but with a bit of setup logic in the
postinst.  So:                                    - LIRC support

   This package integrates Linux Infra-red Remote Control support for
   Freevo.

Obviously "files".  Less obviously, browsable.
