Well THANKS posde! Things have been MUCH better for me since I tried your new installer flavor. Myth is working, system seems stable etc. I have been running this version since just after you posted it with no major errors.
The only minor glitch seems to be that sometimes after I hit the tv button on an xp orbiter, the orbiter will freeze for a few seconds, then crash. It usually restarts itself but not always. MythTV starts as it is supposed to though. I haven't heard my wife complain about it though so it may be an issue with windoze 7. That is what is on the laptop that my orbiter software runs on. She has Vista on her laptop.
When I get time I will reinstall the orbiter software and see if that fixes the problem. Just wanted to say thanks for the hard work, and thanks for your help!
