OK....I finally got mythweb working.
Now, another newbie question:
I have a pchdtv HD-5500 card...I'm using Time Warner digital cable in the
Los Angeles area. I have the raw cable plugged into the "Television"
input. I can scan channels in DVB mode. However, mythtv-setup won't scan
any of the low-order SD channels (2 through 98) as a V4L device. TVTime
will see these for about a second or two, then lose the signal. Before I
had scanned anything on the DVB side, TVTime would let me watch the analog
channels. Can this card only be used in one mode at a time, or can Myth
be configured to see both? I'm hoping that I just have it configured
I also have a Firewire card and a DCT-6200 STB, and I have the 6200ch
script working (so it does change channels on the STB when used from the
command line). I have a firewire option set up in the list of capture
cards, but apparently scanning channels is not yet supported on the
firewire setup. How can I test to see if the firewire works within Myth?
I'm using Thac's RPMs under Mandriva 2006 x86-64. I assume that these
were built with Firewire enabled? Yes, all the necessary ieee-1394
modules are loaded.
