[mythtv-users] Some more questions...

I'm using FC2.  FC3 didn't go that far (I tried it about a week before you
updated to the FC3 docs) - and I wasn't sure if my problems were related to
FC3 or not, so I figured I had nothing to lose and went "back" to FC2.

The LIRC is working now - somebody posted the "new grey" Hauppauge remote
configuration, and that worked for me.  (Thanks, by the way!)

I've set the screen size to 640x400-ish in the Myth configuration screens
and have been messing with the offset in an attempt to shift the picture
fully onto the picture.  I don't see enough information to even know what
the prompts are.

Is there some trick to activate the offsets?  I see the numbers, but they
don't seem to be having any effect.  There are other checkboxes on the page
but I cannot read them since they're far enough off the screen to mask a few
words.  I've tried both positive and negative offsets just in case.

I think I've got other issues, but I'm not confident that the configuration
has been done correctly since I don't see part of the configuration text.

Thanks for any info!

FC2 or 3?

I helped set up a fresh(ish) FC3 box today, had zero problems getting lirc
work after adding a udev rule.

In /etc/udev/rules.d/lirc.rules:
KERNEL="lirc0",        SYMLINK="lirc"

The 350's output can't do anything but 720x480 (for ntsc, 720x576 for pal), 
and there's no control of overscan. That's as good as it gets right now.
