firstly, i just joined the MythTV forum and mailing list a few days ago.
secondly, i am just trying to get an understanding of what hardware is
needed to get a MythTV box working. so, here is my situation...
Dish Network is my tv signal provider (not switching back to Comcast -
i have an AMD 3800+ X2 (64bit) machine sitting here, aching to be put to
it has no capture card of any kind. i was looking into purchasing an
Hauppauge HD PVR 1212, and linking the Dish Network box to the HD PVR
via Component cables, then to my tv. the HD PVR would be connected to
my MythTV machine by USB. i would use this machine solely as the 'back
end' machine, and use an identical machine (that has an nVidia card) for
displaying the videos.
so... does this sound correct? am i missing anything?
