So I'm building a DVR box (I live in Slovenia as you can see to the left) and the only thing I haven't picked out is the TV tuner. I've checked the MythTV wiki, the LinuxTV mailing list and your wonderful forum, but either found nothing on the cards the shops are selling near my location or found an unresolved problem on the mailing list. I really want to get a TV tuner that either runs out of the box on Linux or can be whipped into shape by minor tweaks.
The functions that we absolutely must have are:
- Analog TV support (this is what we have now)
- Digital TV support (we may go digital in the near future)
- MPEG-2 (apparently, this is what we use)
The ones that are optional, but would be very nice to have are:
- Radio support (my mom would love this)
- Hardware encoder
I know questions like this have been asked already and for that I apologize, but I'm really running low on ideas. I would really appreciate the feedback or at the very least another site/person I can go to. So thanks in advance for at least taking a look!
