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).
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.
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...
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.
