What might the reasons be for the setup wizard to NOT see the installed hardware when other applications apparently can? This seems to be an issue of LinuxMCE's wizard being unable to "see" hardware that is properly installed in the machine, and visible to the OS and other applications regardless of whether those applications are part of the LinuxMCE installation.
Maybe it would help if I re-state the issue from a slightly different perspective, if you'll all indulge me.
During LinuxMCE's installation process, (the part where we're guided by Sara(sp?)), it shows a "box" (for want of a more accurate term) which should list the capture devices which are installed in the machine. My understanding is that this is where my TV tuners should show up and be selectable, please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong there. In my case, this "box" remains completely black, and nothing is selectable.
Now, regardless of whether mythtv-setup can see these devices, (and regardless of the fact that mythtv-setup is part of LinuxMCE,) aren't they supposed to show up during LinuxMCE's install process? Again, please correct me if this is an incorrect assumption.
My point here is that this is an "installation issue" for LinuxMCE and nothing more. It should be investigated and (depending on what is found, if anything) fixed, shouldn't it?
I am fully capable of hacking at my system to make it do what I want within the context of making it perform the functions of a PVR, but I was under the impression that LinuxMCE was supposed to simplify the process so that I wouldn't have to. If this is not the case, then what is the point of the existence of the LinuxMCE distribution?
I apologize if the tone of this post seems anything but clear-headed and relevant. My goal here isn't "make my computer be a PVR," but more of "do what I can to make LinuxMCE a better and more functional product without any programming ability."
