Let me understand,
You capture directly the rf cable of the antenna in a DVB-S and decode the signal or you capture the S-Video/Component or HDMI output of the STB? Like with a Hauppauge Card?

Anyone have experienced HAVA? How it's the qualty, and there's the annoing delay between the real source and the mpeg2 stream as the hauppauge for example?

But with MythTV you have the possibility to add a tv card in the future. Onestly i don't see why not.

Using VDR, how would you CAPTURE a Component Signal?
(That's where the Hava would come in handy)

We have a vdr plugin for that in development (you obviously need a card with component-in on-board too) that would be used to capture the output of a UK Sky TV STB or any other external video source. That source then appears as a special channel in the TV channel list. Then a PC or an MD on the network can request a stream from that source and watch it (or record it). All recording is done at the Core. Multiple PC's or MD's can watch the stream concurrently.

There is a VDR plugin for Sky. Have you try it?

We now use the IPTV plugin for vdr and a SkyBoxPlayer device in LinuxMCE to do this. We also use the SkyBoxPlayer for situations where we are not capturing the output of the Sky box(s) but are controlling the Sky Box and then using a video Matrix switch to route the video to any number of screens.


What is a SkyBoxPlayer  and how you turn the Sky Output in a stream?

Yes, beginning to translate the wiki like the Deutcsch Community did it's a good start.

Anyway it's also important  try to understand the difference between an American Installation and an Italian One.
I mean that in italy DVB-S is not so diffused, like SKY is. Here we have to face to our standard to automation like KNX/EIB, i mean also setting up for VOIP provider like Eutelia, Cheapnet that aren't in the Mce database.( I think Emanuele could be very helpful for this).

If you agree guys,to start, we can split the translation to do less work.

Hi, we registered the domain and we want to create an Italian Community of LinuxMCE.
I see the German Community (, it's basically a partial Translation of the Wiki.

Our goal is to spread the knowledge of MCE, wich in Italy is very low, contrariwise of an a large open-source community, and make
life easier for the new users who want to begin with MCE, maybe translating the installation guides.

Have you any good advice before we start to work out?

Best Regard,
