Thanks to Gregory, I finally got a working mythtv setup. All that is
left now is finishing up stuff, like the remote, DVD transcoding
deamon, things like that.
Indeed the kernel-sds-2.6.7-1.sds.23mdk contains a newer version of
the IVTV drivers, just remember to delete msp3400.ko.gz in the
/lib/modules/.. directory and replace it with the ivtv-msp3400.ko.gz
so that the sound works.
So now I got this as a system:
1.6Ghz Pentium IV
20 System disk and buffer holding place for "Live TV"
200GB Video storage.
Hauppauge PVR 350 (Since it was almost beeing advertised in the doc's)
1 hour of video ~ 2,5Gb.
If there is a need (email me about it) I should make a list of
things i've done to get it to work this far, as some things I did
where derrived from personal communication with others, and was not
available on the net, even after I knew what to search for.
Oh, PAL users: Download the source code (c99) of the ivtv driver and
compile the utils directory. Then you can use ivtvctl
--set-freq=3456 (216 mhz * 16 - For Nederland1)) to tune the
channels. Hehe, nice little bone there ;-)
Thanks Gents, thanks a lot!
