Hello!

I'm a beginner concening MediaCenters and here's my question:

My machine:
AMD X2 6000+
Nvidia 8800 GTX
2GB DDR2
...

My TV is connected to my graphics card by a DVI to HDMI cable.
Now if i get myself a DVB-(C) Video Capture Card, that should suffice for me to use mythbuntu properly, right? i mean i don't necessarily need a Graphics card with a TV-Out interface, do i?

Thx guys!

You are correct. DVI to HDMI is probably the best way to connect your mythbox to your tv

Thanks for the quick reply!

So am i also right in saying that the only thing i need now is the MythTV packages and the DVB-C card?
