Dear users,

I am very experienced with Linux, but brand new with Mythtv.

I am using a PVR-250 card. This card works fine under linux, using
the appropriate drivers (ie I can see the video input in a window using
mplayer -vo xv /dev/video0).

I did the configuration using mythtvsetup, as described in the howto.

I did configure the mpeg-2 encoders in the front-end.

But LiveTV does not work, the front-end complains with :

2005-07-02 00:14:22.041 Changing from None to WatchingLiveTV
2005-07-02 00:14:22.075 Unknown video codec
2005-07-02 00:14:22.075 Please go into the TV Settings, Recording Profiles and
2005-07-02 00:14:22.075 setup the four 'Software Encoders' profiles.
2005-07-02 00:14:22.076 Assuming RTjpeg for now.
2005-07-02 00:14:22.076 NVR: Error, unknown audio codec
2005-07-02 00:14:22.087 NVR: Won't work with the streaming interface, falling
VIDOCGMBUF:: Argument invalide
2005-07-02 00:14:22.091 TVRec: Recording Prematurely Stopped

I tried to look for these "Software Encoders", but I do not have any of
those. I only see "MPEG-2 Encoders (PVR-250,PVR-350)" and "Encodeurs".

What should I do ?

Thx, Frederic.
