I posted this to the users list a while ago and was offered a good
alternative (save to mpeg4 and setup transcode job), but I'd really like
One of the items on the release notes is:
Added the ability to capture MPEG-2 video from the go7007 driver
I have a plextor convertx which uses the go7007 driver. (it does work
with plextors test capture program, so the device is ok, the drivers
In mythtv 0.21, I cannot get it to work. I cannot find anyplace to set
it to mpeg2, so I am assuming that's my problem.
In mythtv-setup, I added the device (listed as MPEG-4 plextor convertx).
In mythfrontend I go into the recording profiles and select that device.
There is a combo for selecting the encoding but I cannot change it
Is there something I'm missing?
(I really need it in mpeg-2 because I have a low powered pc and I use a
PVR-350 for tv-out. And it only support mpeg-2.)
Thanks for your time,
