Can't wait until I can get this going :)
« on: August 21, 2007, 03:29:48 am »
I have a machine that from what I read will do everything that I need it do to, but I still have a couple of questions....


  • What is the current supported HD video capture card?
  • What is needed to make LinuxMCE work with DirecTV
  • Which surround sound cards are supported[/lli]
Any help would be greatly appreciated!  I REALLY hope this project continues to grow and make improvements!  Thanks for everyone that has been working so hard on this project!!

Thanks again,
