Users / Confused about tuner cards and the whole digital thing
« on: January 11, 2011, 10:39:22 pm »
This is probably a really newbie dumb question but.. I'm really confused about this digital/tuner card thing.  I'd love to use LinuxMCE so I began researching it about a week ago.  However, what I still don't get what I am supposed to do considering digital encryption on the "Understanding Digital" wiki. (I have Timerwarner cable). Does this just mean I'm only able to record OTA channels?  Moreover, I can't seem to find the tuner card related info that someone said was pinned (unless thats the DVB info, but the wiki states that its used for digital mostly outside of north america).  Do I just get ATSC/NTSC tuners (I thought I had analog because our my 10 year old TV doesn't have a set-top box, but according to another forum, I do).  Is there any link that someone can direct me to so I can understand this better?

Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for all the help. 

Users / Newbie needing help with build

   I'm not quite sure if this is the right forum, but I'm looking for help on choosing components for my new LinuxMCE media directors and more importantly, the core.  I've looked at the wiki and the newbie starter guides, but they seem to be relatively outdated - I'm not sure if that means I can use a pretty old system or what.  Specifically, I was looking into the new Sandy Bridge processor, etc, but I'm not even sure if that's necessary.  I'm most concerned about which TV tuner to use, as well as devices used to receive signal and whatnot.  If there is already a recent build link, I apologize.
