yes the novaT500 is both is HD and SD.  when you scan for channels it will pick up both the hd and sd channel frequencies.  i think hauppauge cards are really over priced though.. but that's just an opinion.. they're certainly very popular. 

Also.. i believe nova-t is only supported by 2.6.19 and later kernels.  im not sure what linuxpvr uses.. surely it's fine though given totallymaxed uses them?  also.. the remote may not be supported?

mythtv can be accessed via a instant messenger client.  you can likely modify. 

there isnt a huge amount of duel dvb-t cards available.  I believe DVICO FusionHDTV have one . .and given their single tuner cards work well with mythtv, i presume they would work.  certain check before hand though.

hardware encoder is an interesting request.  digital telly is broadcast is mpeg.. the cards dont really need to encode anything.  hardware encoders exist on high end analog cards like hauppage pvr250 because analog broadcasts DO need to be encoded to mpeg.  one of the benefits of digital broadcast is that it is very light on cpu usage.

what extra features (that you don't want) were you referring to? 

Anyway.. its only a single tuner.. but the Technisat Airstar 2 PCI is a very good digital tuner card.  it's around $AU100.  just get two and your sorted.  they work great with mythtv.

mythtv can handle (pretty much) as many tuner cards as youve got pci slots. 

Users / use australian community guide for EPG?

hello.  First post :-).

I enjoyed the demo movie on google video.  That gyro remote looks exciting.

I noticed the epg.  Living in australia, we use a community guide for mythtv.  ive installed knoppmyth using the ausdragon script which automatically fixes xmltv to get epg data from the community guide.. its really the only working epg for australians.

can i use this guide data with linuxmce?  i noticed in the demo video the use of datadirect .. so i presume that will move to schedules direct with mythtv 0.20.2. 

from the movie "the tuner card is automatically detected, and it finds the provider for my area.  Since im serviced by datadirect .. bla bla bla."

Will linuxmce "find" the australian community guide as the provider in my area?.. ie australia?

not much point having a pvr without a working epg.. and ive never had great success with the OTA epg.. it gets like 4 hours of epg.. which isnt hugely helpful..

thanks. heres a link to the community guide if needed.
