[mythtv] Poll: System Requirements
Sun, 17 Nov 2002 14:00:41 -0800 (PST)
Here's my setup which I just got working:
- P2 400MHz - 128MB RAM
- 9GB Seagate IDE 5400rpm
- AverTV Studio capture card
- SB Live!
- ATI Radeon 7500
- Mandrake 9 w/ default (ALSA) sound drivers
- mythtv 0.7 release
- I initially had major prolems with XMLTV, but using
the newer version(the one released last week) fixed
it, and everything installed w/o problems.
- At first audio was out of sync. I muted 'line in'
from the mixer, and it works great.
- hdparm -tT /dev/hda values:
Timing buffer-cache reads: 128 MB in 1.13 seconds
Timing buffered disk r-eads: 64 MB in 4.41 seconds
= 14.51 MB/sec
Deinterlace=0 (segfault occurs if this is set to 1)
everything else is the default setting.
I get some choppy video if i set the height and width
to 640x480 and a segfault if I set it to 800x600.
320x200 isn't the best, but it's fine until I get the
gatos ATI tv-out drivers working :). I'm actually
surprised that myth performs as well as it does on
such a crappy system :). Kudos Isaac!
