I have been using MythTV since .14 and really never had great
performance out of it.
The system is a combined backend/frontend with a 1200 AMD Duron, 512M
RAM, 10 gig HD space to play with, PVR-250, and a Radeon 9000. I have
always experienced less than spectacular video quality so never really
could justify spending money to get a faster processor or a bigger hard
Last week my roommate began to threaten to disconnect Myth and hook the
cable box back up to the TV!!! I had always figured that Myth couldn't
run on my little 1.2 Duron and that I needed some more power under the
hood, but yesterday BestBuy had a great deal on a 200gig hard drive that
I just couldnt pass up. Much to my surprise after installing the new
drive and re-mounting /var/video, MythTV .16 now works PERFECTLY! The
picture is great, the sound is great, no video stutter.... PERFECT!
Developers, Keep up the good work!
