You are unfortunately, doing this very wrong. Stop ripping up the carpet and the floorboards, and the plumbing...
What you need to do, is make a device template for your set top box. See the DCT6412 device template for details. Define all of the commands that it has, and create little ruby snippets for them (usually <$"string to send"$>).. Once this is done, you can hook it up in the setup wizard, and MythTV will do the right thing.
I'm running a Zotac ION as MD without problems on 10.04. At install it hangs at the same point you discribed, but after a reboot everything was running smoothly...
I created a template to control the DirecTV sat boxes via RS232 (usb port on sat box and rs232 on pc). You just need to know the command codes to be sent, then create the template.
You are thinking too hard, stop it.
You would need to make a device template for your tuner box. An example of this would be the DCT6412 device template (Look in Advanced > Configuration > Device Templates), this device is controlled by IR, and can be selected via the Setup Wizard.
Once you've gotten a USB UIRT (http://www.usbuirt.com/), you can create a new IR device template (Select controlled by IR when it asks you), and proceed to lay out which buttons you actually have on your satellite box remote. You can then use the Learn function for each one of these codes, and Test each one to make sure it works correctly.
You also need to make sure that you have LiveTV selected as the input it provides.
Once this is done. You can then start the setup wizard. Select your new satellite box from the list (after you've selected the appropriate manufacturer), and specify WHERE it is plugged into your AV equipment and how. If it is plugged into a tuner card, you can specify it in the next screen, as well.
Once this is done, all the necessary plumbing will be done. It really seriously alarms me that people do not understand this system and think that they have to rip everything up to accomplish what they need to do.
Thank you for the various pointers. Ultimately, it was spare parts with compatibility mode switched OFF that solved it. The creation of the new resolution was not necessary for me either, although that did work also. FYI I was able to uninstall spare parts after compatibility mode had been disabled, and it still works. Thanks again.
I did not, I wasn't sure what good it would do - 1024x600 is the exact resolution I need.
I wish I'd tried the touchorbiter before I flashed the tablet to honeycomb.
Is this anything to do with why I am not getting a sharp image on my 1024x600 tablet?
I had a similar problem and had to disable compatibility mode under settings > Spare parts
Not sure if it will help you though!
You may have to change some settings on your tablet. The top menubar takes up some of your display size, so your tablet may be shrinking orbiter to fit. IE if your screen size is 800x600 and the menu bar is 800x20 your true resolution is 800x580. There are settings to hide the menu bar. Not sure if this is your issue, just a suggestion.
