Thanks for the suggestion...

Problem is, I can't seem to find the CD... :-(   Is there anywhere else I 
can get the firmware?


Make sure you have the correct firmware from the correct directory on
the CD.  I beat my head against the wall for days until I tried the
firmware on the CD.  The one you extract from the latest dirvers on
their website never worked for me.

Subject: [mythtv-users] remote backend tuner problem
To: <mythtv-users at mythtv.org>
Message-ID: <000601c584d0$881c7ec0$0300a8c0 at Nugen101>
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="windows-1250"

Here's the setup, masterbackend with one PVR150 in it and a large hard
drive. One remote frontend/backend combination with a PVR350 in it using the
TV out function. At this point I can watch live TV over the network, see the
EPG, schedule recordings, and connect to the database. What I can't seem to
get working is the remote backend tuner card. When I goto HYPERLINK
"" and look at the status it
says that encoder 2 is on mythfront1 and is not currently connected. I'm not
sure what to do to get it connected!!! I have manipulated the mysql.txt
files in order to get the database to connect, and it seems to be working
fine. Could it be because I am using the TV out to run X on that I can't
record on that card? Seems like that wouldn't be the issue. but I',m not
sure. I looked at the my.cnf file and did not see anything in there of any
interest. I read somewhere that there should be a skip_netowrking line but
mine sis not seem to have one, could that be the problem? If so, where does
that line go? Here's a copy of that file from my masterbackend:

[root at masterback ~]# vi /etc/my.cnf












 I'm not sure where to proceed next. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
