Well, I went and bought the GT 710 card. It doesn't work. This chipset was released in early 2016.

Does anyone have an nVidia card working under 14.04? Which one?

Maybe Raspberry Pis are an option:

Installation issues / Video Card Recommendations?
« Last post by cafedumonde on February 15, 2017, 03:05:38 pm »

I am still working on getting my new diskless MD to work at 1080i with my Sony CRT TV. In an earlier post I reported that the install would not complete with an older nVidia Geforce 7300 card, apparently because of incompatibility with current drivers. I am also having difficulty with my onboard Intel graphics, which I believe to be specific to my MB. I would like to try a new nVidia card. Before I purchase, I thought it would be good to get a recommendation from the community. I know a lot of compatibility information used to be in the wiki but it is hard to discern what is current.

My options are:

GeForce 8400
GeForce GT 710
GeForce 210

All are low end cards, costing about $30 before rebates, $15 to $20 after.

The most important thing for me to be able to set the video mode to 1080i using xorg.conf, overriding EDID information, as I have with my core that uses Intel graphics. I tried an ATI card yesterday but this does not seem possible with the proprietary driver that is installed by default. I did try to create my own EDID file, using info from another monitor, as advised in various forms, without success. At this point I just want something that is known to work.

Is anyone setting video modes using xorg.conf with one of the cards listed above? Otherwise what are recommendations?

Thanks,

CDM

This location is usable without needing to go through hoops to download it from the commandline:

Interestingly enough, that hasn't recurred since building my dev environments (I have tested on both a 64-bit 1604 and a 32-bit 1404 VM environment, same hardware)..

As it happens, VMWare workstation is proving to be a far more stable environment for development than VirtualBox (and even properly handles compositing)... with the latest Utils.sh, vmware is now detected and handled properly.

Has the DVD playback bug been fixed?  The id worked but playing fails due to dvdcss timing out as EMI would continuously try to id the disk.  Had to do with return data not being correct after the id.  Anyways, wondering if that's been fixed, if it has I'll try to test it.

Hello everyone,

I've been on hiatus for the last year and a half (actually a bit longer), as I needed to take care of other things in my life...but am back now, and squashing bugs on my list.

One of the things I had left in an unfinished state was debugging the reverse engineered External Media Identifier, which identifies CDs and DVDs inserted into the system and tags them appropriately.

Due to (what is now known as) an unusual compiler bug dealing with 64-bit pointer alignment, I had to disable the DVD identification code that I had written which replicated the behavior found in the original External Media Identifier.

This code now works, and I've been able to identify a series of both DVD and CD disks correctly, all of which have corresponding entries in the AMG database.

I need a few people who have DVD and CD collections to ping me, so I can give an External Media Identifier binary to test, and report issues, so that I can finally get this piece dealt with.

I created a ticket '2703' a while back concerning the mythtv setup scripts.  It is still open.

The ticket documents my findings and what I have dome to get mythtv working on the MDs
