HD Tuner Question
« on: April 12, 2007, 02:14:07 am »
Has anyone had success using a wintv-HVR 950?  If it will not work can you recommend a HD tuner?

I am installing as I type, I am very excited about this app/product/revolution.

As far as I know, PVR x50 works fine.

I'm currently using an Avermedia A180 ATSC\QAM tuner and it works fine under LinuxMCE.  You have to jump through a few hoops to install it, but there's a really simple HowTo here that works great:

As soon as they get the MythFrontend issues resolved, I'll be picking up a SiliconDust HDHomeRun.  It's supported natively and simple to use.
