hi there... first time poster. i wasnt sure if i was suposed to reply to this post or start a new one.
regardless.. maybe this is a new forum? .. so i wanted to post my experiences. it was positive.
Mobo: gigabyte GA-7N400 (its fine.. but it doesnt have sata connectors)
CPU: athlon XP 3200+ underclocked to around 2000mhz socket a
RAM: 1 gig (2 x 512) corsair value select DDR
Video Card: winfast leadtek GF7300GT. connected via component cables to a SD CRT tv.
Sound Card:nvidia onboard.
HD:samsung 400g pata
Remote: streamzap - im not thrilled with the default mapping so ill change it
Tuners: Technisat AirStar 2 DVB-T .. required me to update vlc.
i needed to update VLC before the tuner card would be detected.
the video card was detected fine.. which was nice.
i live in australia. i believe that i asked for xmltv to be installed, but it didn't do it for me. i had to install xmltv via apt-get. I then needed to create tv_grab_au and modify that to suit. I used a piece of code written by manicmike from the knoppmyth forums. his code sets up tv_grab_au. i needed to modify the code to fit the mythbuntu file structure.. but it worked perfectly.
i enjoyed this setup. thanks to those that worked on it.
