Yeah, I tend to get long winded like that at times. ;-) I haven't had much
time to mess with my system the past couple of days, but I should make some
progress by this weekend.
I had some trouble with lirc using the modules provided with the kernel, but
upgraded to a new lirc package fixed everything. Seems that the hauppauge
lirc module (lirc_i2c) is broken in the released kernel (2.6.7-epia1). The
tv card is working pretty well now, so I decided to upgrade to the latest
myth cvs code. That forced me to upgrade my master backend as well. :-(
Now that's all done, my epia frontend segfaults as soon as you try to watch
a recording. It looks like the epia opengl stuff doesn't play well with the
new(ish?) OPENGL_VSYNC stuff in myth. So I'm now recompiling mythtv without
support for the vertical sync to see if it starts working. If it does, then
I'll pursue why.
I also had trouble with sound in myth using /dev/dsp when trying to watch a
recording (Unable to create audiooutput device) and had to switch to
"ALSA:default" for the output device. Oddly enough, mythmusic worked just
fine with /dev/dsp hmmm.
I found an e-build for a late version of myth at:
I haven't tried using it, but I thought it might help you out. I discovered
it quite by accident when looking for something else. Let me know how it
