Myth tv was giving me some problems from snapshot 23479, recorded tv was not showing up
in the Video file. It seemed to work because now I can see my list of recorded programs and delete
when I have watched them. I am now useing  snapshot 23559  this is a learning exercise for me I am
testing random snapshots  to get experence with the 810 version, setting up myth ect.

Hi guys, I have just installed the Dec.5 Snapshot. I did the apt-get update twice and apt-get dist-upgrade, everything seemed to go
fine. I went through the setup with Sara and when she gets to the software add on which I believe is the "libdvdcss" file that came in when installing ver 710, in fact I tried my copy of 710 and the software was there. my question is has this software been removed
from the 810 version. if it has then how do I get my dvd to play movies. Otherwise this snapshot appears to be working well
thanks for any help offered.

Thank you "huh" I appreciate your how to do it. I hope this is not to dumb a question, but I don't know what to do with
the instruction ctrl+ v is this after I type in your code starting with deb file:/user/pluto/deb-cash .
Then you say to cntrl + x to exit nano, is this  a typo here. I have stopped after nano /etc/apt/sources.list.
My terminal is blank with a cursor at the top of the page, is this what I should see at this point. I would love to learn more about linux code can you recommend a good starter book.

thanks: Gord Hope

I consider myself even though I have been running 710 for 2 years , a newbe . Since I tried 810 version 23438 I have been fortunate in that the system booted to the Kumbuntu desktop.I tried to do the updates as directed in the forum apt-get update
was pretty much what every one else is getting lots of 404 errors  the apt-get dist-upgrade seemed to go fine. I then installed LinuxMce The setup went fine MythTv worked,I set up my analog tuner and the TV works. will some one please explain to This possibility very lucky to get this far old guy, how do I bring up the source list and edit it to get the old releases. it would be very helpful to do a step by step of this process if someone would be so kind .

Has anybody tried the WinTV-HVR 950 USB Hybrid  stick It is mentioned as one of the tuner's that work, out of the box. I have not been so lucky. this tuner is not recognized when setting up tuner's in myth I don't know what to check as the type of tuner in the setup screen there is only 1 USB card mentioned in the list and it doesn't work I get a message "no card present" I have tried everyone on the list non of them work. Can anyone HELP.


I have purchased a UsbUirt from their home site. It does take control of the Mce remote but the mce uirt would do the same. It came with no instructions for linuxmce does not even support linux on the web site.
I have spent $112.00 on the CommandIR and it will do about the same as the usbuirt allow me to control the GUI of linuxmce with a MCE remote something I could do out of the box with the Mce uirt. now I have spent $55.00 on the UsbUirt and I have the same problem the seller of the usbuirt tells me they know nothing about setting up the uirt in linux but they would help me with windows. I am sure from what I have read in the forums that this can be programed to work if I new how, every one says that it works out of the box this would mean plug  & play. Plug& play to do what? to control the cursor on the screen.
I want to be able to take controll of a StarChoice Satellite box change channels in programs record programed recordings . I don't know how to find the code learning program for the usbuirt can anyone shed some light on this Please.
