Firewire Capture from Cable Box
« on: October 16, 2008, 03:55:01 pm »


I'm getting ready to try this this weekend though the LMCE wiki is silent on the topic. Its well covered in the MythTV wiki, however ( Before I dig in, I thought I'd ask the if anyone has advice on doing this with LMCE. A few questions come to mind:

1) Is there advice on which card / chipset to get?
2) Resources for cable box device drivers?
3) Dasiychaining vs. using separate ports for multiple boxes?
4) Changing channels via firewire instead of with IR.

Again, all of this seems doable with Myth. Just wondering if there are any LMCE specific experiences or advice.
