Any help would be good.
Rule #1 - Be Patient - Rule #2 - Don't ask when, if you don't contribute - Rule #3 - You have coding skills - LinuxMCE's small brother is available: http://www.agocontrol.com

I would answer yes, yes, yes and then after the system comes up, use alsamixer from a terminal session and turn on all of the IEC958 stuff. I noticed that a few times in the AV Setup Wizard, that I did not get sound, and you want to be honest and answer "No", but in the end, doing so tells LMCE not to configure your optical output.
Try it again, aswer, "Yes" to all sound prompts, if you hear it or not, then after the system comes up, open a term session to it, and play with the alsamixer settings.
How I did it was, I fired up a dvd, got it playing, and then from my laptop, logged into the MD and launched 'alsamixer' and played with the options, until there was sound.
Give it a try, can't hurt.
No, you miss the point.
If LMCE doesn't know about the tuner cards, it not only can't set them up in the setup wizard automatically, you can't use them to control legacy A/V devices...
You'll need a little bit of shell scripting experience to make the plug and play scripts.
If you look in the web admin, Advanced > configuration > device templates, you'll see the main UI for manipulating and creating templates...
Select the PVR-150 template, and have a look. You'll see references to various .sh scripts, these can be found in /usr/pluto/bin
Basically the template specifies what the device is, what it can do, and how it should set itself up.
The shell scripts are the needed steps required to set up the device itself.
Basically, any device that LinuxMCE can use effectively, needs to be able to output MPEG-2 to something like /dev/video0, like the PVR 150/250/500/USB2/etc do.
I can be here to answer questions.
They're all currently discontinued due to the digital TV transition, you'll need to search google and ebay at the moment.
We will support the Hauppauge HD-PVR once the driver becomes more stable.
Yeah, that audio problem is from a cheap tuner card. I had that happen with an older card I used. Basically, when you stop the video from your card, the audio doesn't shut off. I use the pvr500 mentioned earlier and it's great. Has mpeg encoders on it, so my cpu doesn't take the load of transcoding. Highly recommend it
For SD: Hauppauge PVR 150/250/500/USB2
For HD: HDHomeRun
don't mess with anything else. Trust me on this (I'm one of the Devs.)
