Hi all

I have a old computer which I want to use as a htpc, I installed mythbuntu onto it but have had several problems with it, i get video with no picture but sound plus im having trouble setting up my wintv card . I suppose my question is is it better to install ubuntu then mythtv or just stay with mythbuntu.

:confused:

I'd recommend sticking with mythbuntu, its neater than doing things piece by piece. At the end of the day, its all the same software.

My guess with your sound but no video problem is that its a codec issue. If you open the Mythbuntu Command Centre (MCC) from the Applications menu, there's an option in there to install all codecs from medibuntu. That will probably be the easiest way for you to get everything you need.
