[mythtv-users] Automatic converting HDTV to MPEG2

My hardware is an Nforce 3 motherboard, with Geforce 4 built in video card,
also tried an AGP Nvidia 5200 card. The hard drive is a WD 160GB the
processor is a 3000+ AMD chip and I have 256MB ram which I need to increase.
The motherboard is generic one, the machine is an old E-Machines box. 

The capture cards are a Avermedia A180 and a PVR150 both chosen such that
they include hardware encoding.

Again everyone tells me the hardware is very well support. I finally did get
the Nvidia graphics drivers installed. The problem appears that the Nvidia
script does not work with FC6 and you have to use RPMs. However in you have
tried Nvidia script you have to manually remove drivers. Then after drivers
are installed you have to kiss the config gods to figure out what needs to
be done to get GLX loaded and to be able to change the resolution. Both
required many trips to google and hours of trial and error as most answers
were "turn off EDIS" or "load GLX in xorg.conf."

Not to be snide here, but most of your problem detailed in your message 
were related to your hardware or Linux, not Myth itself.
