Upgrading to 1204 - considerations
« on: July 15, 2014, 06:48:35 pm »
I’m running 1004 and one of my MDs just kicked the bucket. Trying to decide if I should bite the bullet and upgrade to 1204 and buy a newer replacement MD, or try to find some cheap older hardware that will work with 1004.

In terms of moving to 1204, from the ticket list in svn, the only things that jump out at me as maybe being a deal breaker for my family’s use cases are

http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac/ticket/2075
and
http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac/ticket/2132

Have these issues been reproduced by others, or can anyone comment on the usability of myth/usb-uirt in 1204?

Any general comments on the stability of 1204 would be appreciated too.

Cheers,

Dave

I've been using 1204 for a long time. I am not using MythTV, nor USB-UIRT atm, so I can't comment on those. If 1204 would have problems, I would have been dead by now, killed by SWMBO.

Installed 1204 a while back but only added a md today (Zbox ID 80) Was pretty much plug & play and so far so good
Core:Asus P8H77-V, Intel core i3-3240 LGA155, Inno 3D Nvidia 240 GT (DVI+VGA+HDMI), 4Gb ram, 125Gb SSD
MD: Zotax Zbox ID41
