> I purchased a cheap bttv based capture card last spring and built a Myth

> prep the VCR.  I used an old 1.4GHZ AMD white box pc I had laying around.
> With Mandriva 2007.0 as the OS, I compiled and got it working well enough
> for our needs (glorified VCR).  At the time we used MythTV Player to watch
> the shows via her laptop's s-video connection to our TV.
> This summer, while her shows are off the air, I re-built the box with
> Ubuntu
> Fiesty and installed the pre-built packages.  The system is running much
> better now.  In fact, live tv would work in a pinch as it only experiences
> random split second pauses every five or so minutes.  After two or three
> nights of tinkering, until the small hours of the morning, I got the TV
> output on the video card working and am looking forward to hooking it up
> to
> the living room TV.

> Doesn't need to be fancy, just want to be able to kick off playback on the

The one I remembered was Flash
