Users / HD Recording for MYTH
« on: September 12, 2011, 01:58:00 pm »
Hi Guys

Living in South Africa our satellite provider is DSTV/Multichoice.

And to have any kind of quality from them you need to go to HD since capturing SD and having myth show it on a HD screen you just
really end up with crappy quality TV.

I did some research on their decoder and it seems the only way to get HD quality out of it is through HDMI.

Now the problem I have is that the HDMI port needs to be HDCP compliant.

Is there any recording devices out there that supports this?
As I would still like to be able to record the shows through mythtv and not using the decoder.

Any info will be greatly appreciated.

Developers / Configuration Summary
« on: September 07, 2011, 09:11:01 am »
Hi Guys

I have an idea I want to run by you guy and see if there is a actual need for this.

I want to write a script that will take your configuration from the db and put it all into a single HTML page.

This will then give you the overview of how your system is configured and will allow you to drill down into each component for the
options linked to it, hopefully I will be able to make a nice visual representation of how all your a/v equipment fits together. Maybe even include the last 100 lines from the log files for each device.

The reason I am thinking about this, is I often see people having issues on the forum and no nice way of them sharing their system configuration.

What do you guys think?
Is this something that is needed and or wanted?
Any suggestions welcome

Any help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
I would really like to get this setup so I can start playing with my iphone as a remote.


Users / What is the best Remote
« on: August 11, 2011, 07:35:34 pm »
Hi Guys

I have been following the project for a while, I played a little bit with 0704 and finally last week installed 0810 on my system and started playing with it.

I am running a very basic install. Which is currently more a Media centre than a Automation system.
I am also still using a keyboard and mouse to control the system.

What I would like to know is what do you guys suggest to use to control the system for the best user experience.

Would a simple air mouse work, or is it suggested to rather go for a gyration remote.

I had a look at the gyration remote, but it seems to no longer be in production.

Any help/information/suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
