Users / RAM usage / MythTv so slow !
« on: September 20, 2007, 10:18:25 am »
I am very surprized that my freshly installed LMCE is so slow when using MythTV.
My PC :
P4 3GHz HT
Video Nvidia Geforce 2
TV Pinnacle PCTV Rave PCI

When going the system tab of mythtv is says :
RAM 1010MB total, 979MB used

And nothing is running, no tv display, no video playback, no mp3 playing....

Again when I want to navigate in the menus to configure mythtv it takes ages and pauses sometimes more than 30sec. !!!
But if I press ALT-F2 the kubuntu menus go ok.

Is there any performance issue with MythTV ?

Feature requests & roadmap / Pinnacle TV devices support
« on: September 19, 2007, 02:56:26 pm »
It would be good to have support for Pinnacle PCTV devices (USB/PCI) like the latest Hybrid Pro serie but also older boards  based on BT 8X8 chipset.
Thank you.

PS : maybe it works already !? I tried with my PCTV Rave, which is detected, but mythTV can't san for channels and reports errors...)

Users / Pinnacle PCTV Hybrid Pro USB

Has anyone tried successfully the Pinnacle PCTV Hybrid Pro USB stick with LMCE ?
I'm very interested in this device (DVBT/Analog/composite)

Installation issues / Pinnacle PCTV Rave
« on: September 18, 2007, 12:58:40 pm »
I plan to buy an HTPC, but for the moment I want to evaluate LMCE on my own pc
P4 3GHz
Pinnacle PCTV Rave
Analog audio

Does anyone know if he PCTV Rave from Pinnacle is supported ?
The system seems to find it but MythTV cant scan for channels, it says :
"MythTV is already using all available inputs for the channel you selected...."

Any idea ?

Users / Pinnacle PCTV Hybrid Pro / Hauppauge WinTV-HVR compliance
« on: September 04, 2007, 02:59:31 pm »
has anyone tried to install a Pinnacle  PCTV Hybrid Pro TV card/USB stick ?
Does it work well ?
I am interested in 2 models from them :
- PCTV Hybrid Pro Stick (usb)
- PCTV Hybrid Pro PCI
Theses hybrid devices can receive analogue and DVBT signals.

Has anyone tried the ones from Hauppauge ?
- WinTV-HVR-3000
- WinTV-HVR-4000
 (analogue + dvbt + dvbs)


Users / LinuxMCE configuration needed / eg. ASUS P2-M2A690G
« on: August 30, 2007, 12:35:08 pm »
I'm new here and I just downloaded the LinuxMCE 0704 version... not installed it yet, but tonight I guess.

I have a few questions about the configuration needed :
- What is a typical setup to decode 1080p correctly ?
- What is a typical setup to encode 1080p correctly ?
- Is h264 compressed/decompressed by CPU or by GPU via the latest drivers ?
- Which GPU to choose, featuring HDCP support and HDMI output ?
- I have seen a barebone by ASUS P2-M2A690G :
  It uses an ATI RadeonTM 1250 graphic chipset... but I can find this chipset on the ATI site... only one called : ATI Radeon™ Xpress 1250 (for Intel)
The name isn't fully identical and it's for intel, whereas this box is for AMD....
Something else, it says it supports HD and 1080p, but again on the ATI site, on the ATI Radeon™ Xpress 1250 (for Intel) page, it's written 1080i maximum.
Do you think this hardware is worth for a full HD 1080p purpose with LMCE ?

Does LMCE work well in France too (french tv broadcast, epg, localisation....) ?

Thank you.  ;)
