Discovered MythTV last night and very, very impressed.=20
But I need to dedicate (and buy) some hardware for the system.
I have two choices:
1) Buy a Via Eden board.
Not sure about these cheap boards, =A3 80 with 800Mhz chip on board,
integrated video (with TVout), sound and LAN. Linux compatibility is the
worst - so far through lots of searching google - asking here if anyone
knows of show stoppers.
I've not found specific chipsets used. It's critical that the on-board
stuff works because it only has one PCI slot for the capture card. It's
advantage is that it's fanless- so won't keep me awake at night!
Dedicated an Athlon with huge fan is too noisy!!
2) Use my old AMD K6-3 450Mhz - but I'd need to find a new video card
(cheap) with TV-out...
What card is recommended?
Thanks for a great piece of software - very, very impressed.
