Confused!
« on: January 03, 2008, 11:45:45 pm »
Alright, I just hooked up my new computer, got the display on my 42 inch screen and now am stumped on mythtv. I have a PVR-500 (dual tuner) and trying to get it to work to watch live tv.

I have a few questions so going to go ahead and spit them out:

1) I have my coaxial cable running from the cable company -> cable box -> tv. I also have my cable box hooked up to my pvr via rca cables (red, white, yellow). Will both tuner cards be able to work that way? Both have digital cable hooked up. that is.

2) I have read that I need a program guide for tv watching to work. Currently I get the all inputs being used by mythtv screen so I am trying to use the trial version of subscriber digital or whatever but not sure how to allow mythtv and it sync up under video sources.

3) Also, could someone tell me how I should set up my pvr-500 under capture cards? I have the mpeg one selected and added it as 2 separate tuners (not sure if I should have one as coaxial since I have my cable box video out via RCA cables to the tunder card).

hmm, thanks in advance everyone. I did not think it would be this hard.

Correction:
