Firstly let me thank you guys for this excellent software which i have been happily using for a couple of years now as a media server & whole house media system.
I had recently decided to extend its use and explore the other features in the system. I have successfully installed some ip cameras & web Cams as well as a basic z-wave integration. All of which has gone smoothly and has been relatively painless.
Now to get to the particular problem that I am facing. I have decided to look into the TV system and decided on the use of Mythtv as i have a couple of other systems using other media systems which can act as myth frontends.
I took my Nova HD S2 card and installed in the core. It was recognised straight away but when i go into myth setup i am having trouble scanning for channels. I have read the wiki and other usual sources but i am getting lost as i have absolutely zero mythtv experience. My questions are as follows.
1. is Nova card plug & play in LMCE 10.04
2. Do i need to update the drivers as per the wiki http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Hauppauge_Nova-HD-S2
3. If i do apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree is this all that is required as per this post on the forum http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php/topic,11988.msg85335.html#msg85335
Please help as i do not want to break my working install by doing something that is not required.
many thanks in advance for all advice
