Try here:


It's what I use for my Marvel G200.  I'm currently having issues getting
video via the mythtv binary, but have it working with xawtv.

It should support the hardware MJPEG encoding as well.

> I am working on setting up a box to run MythTV full time and I currently am planning on using a G400 and the addon Rainbow Runner card.  I have tried checking the supported drivers for Video4Linux and it did mention that the G400+RR did have support, but on the sourceforge page it said very limited support, but for all i know that could be out of date (which is likely).  I also tried searching the V4L mailing list for information but couldn't find anything terribly relevant.
> I would just like to know what state the drivers are in.  Has anyone on here successfully setup a Myth box using this combination?  I just wanna know if maybe i should scrap it before I start.  If it turns out that there is very minimal support, perhaps so minimal thaI can't even enjoyable use MythTV, what card offers the most support and would work best for this application; I am guessing the Hauppauge?  Anyways, please give me some ideas on what I can expect with this card combination, thanks.
