Please forgive me if these are dumb questions... I'm a total newbie
with linux so I'm really struggling. I've loaded mythtv using the
Knoppix distro. I appear to have a good install but seem to have hit
some roadblocks. Here are some of the problems I'm seeing: First and
foremost, when I select live TV I get a black screen. I am getting
channel listings. Often when I escape out of an area, I get a message
stating the backend isn't running - is the ip correct? I have no idea
why the backend wouldn't be running. I basically have a default install
at this point so probably I'm missing many things - frankly I don't
know. I don't appear to be able to play vcds or listen to music cds
either. If I put a cd or vcd into my cd drive it doesn't seem like Myth
sees it at all. Therefore I can't import either. Not sure what to do
at this point. My video is a Rage 128 and my capture card is Leadtek
Winfast TV 2000Xp Expert. I haven't even begun to try working with the
remote at this point but judging from my experience so far I'll have
issues there too although I read that this card will work. Any and all
help is greatly appreciated!
