What PVR

mkbrown69:
I use MythTV 0.25 on my Debian host, and 5 MiniMyth diskless systems booted on my "external" network.  I'm using Schedules direct for the listing data, and have a mixture of Analog cable and Rogers Digital STB (PVR-150's on slave backend, PVR-1600 on host) as well as Digital OTA (HDHR-3-US on it's own network segment and NIC).

That's production for now, as I work on migrating to LMCE at some point in the (hopefully) near future.

Phenigma,  I'm curious as to why you don't consider MythTV usable within LMCE.  Cutting over to it was going to be one of the activities I was going to work on in the next couple of months, so I'm interested in knowing what I'm in store for...  ;)

Thanks!

I used to have my satellite fed directly into MythTV.  Great quality.  I don't do analog capture cards, terrible quality.  I have had no real experience with HD capture, and most of what I have read is a headache in LMCE.  I've not tried.  I would be interested in your experience with HD capture and the Digital OTA (I have an HDHR but do not currently use it).  I do not wish to hi-jack the poll thread, so we can certainly start a new thread.

Many reasons.  No scheduling interface.  Poor sorting/choosing for recorded TV.  I got way too used to the MythTV interface (back in 0.19-0.22), and REALLY liked it.  I would prefer to use MythTV as if it was an external box and not the, what I consider to be poorly, integrated device it is now.  I don't complain, and won't, as I have put no effort into it.  When I do, I will.  Let's take this to a new thread if you want to continue.

I use mythTV on 1004 using a local cable computer "LibertyCable" connected via rca cables to a HDPVR.  Everything works great, I use the IR Blaster on the HDPVR to change the channels and schedules direct for the guide.  I have very few complaints about myth (most concerning the UI).  I had to configure everything manually, but once it was working Ive had no problems (been about 3 months).

We really need engineering help to try and get the MythTV integration back up to spec.
