    Performance: Forced to upgrade when I lost support on my FC4 machine this fall. I only use standard definition at this point in time and everything worked out of the box EXCEPT for the serial IR receiver. Thanks for the slick installer!
    Can you start another thread on this issue? I have a feeling it should be a pretty simple fix.

    Performance
    I installed mythbuntu (mythbuntu-7.10~071002-i386) in less than an hour and everything worked perfectly straight away. Incredible! Especially since I have spent 100+ hours trying to get this to work on 2 versions of fedora, mythdora and 2 versions of Ubuntu 6.10, 7.04.

    I have two MythBoxes - the first one is here:

    Hardware:
    CPU:
    Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 LGA775 2.40Ghz 8MB L2 Cache 1066Mhz FSB
    RAM: 2GB DDR2 800Mhz
    DVD Drive: LG GSA-H62N SATA DVD Multi Drive
    Video Card: Nvidia 8600GT 256MB PCI-Express
    Sound Card: On Board HD audio ALC880 7.1 Ch
    Motherboard Chipset: Intel G965+ICH8
    HDD: Seagate Barracuda 750GB SATA HDD
    Remote: DVICO USB MCE REMOTE
    Tuners: DVICO Fusion HDTV5 Dual Express [/B]


    Performance

    * Need to add irqpoll to kernel boot parameters for normal boot, otherwise you experience either very slow boot or sometimes impossible to boot, just hangs. (tested this on 4 units i have deployed). This is something to do with the SATA setup)

    * Currently have only one tuner of the dual tuners working. You have to check out the v4l-dvb latest source using mercurial, and then make and install it, then add to /etc/modprobe.d/options the line:

    cx23885 card=4


    This gets one of the dual tuners working at present.

    Other than this everything works great!

    Other than that, everything is just peachy!

    Re: Please post your Functional/Non Functional Hardware

    Hi all.

    Heres my working setup

    Backend:

    Mythbuntu 8.04
    Winfast NF4UK8AA Motherboard.
    Dualcore AMD 4200+
    2.5 gig generic ram
    7300LE Nvidia Graphics Card
    640gb sata2 + 320gb sata2 +300gb sata2 +320gb PATA +320gb PATA for recordings
    640gb sata2 + 500gb sata2 for Videos
    1 200gb for OS and Music
    2 DNTV Live! Tiny USB Devices (2 Tuners)
    1 DNTV Live! Pro Tuner
    2 Fusion HDTV Tuners

    Frontend 1

    MSI K8 Platinum Motherboard
    AMD 3200+
    1 GB Ram
    100GB SATA 2 Samsung 2.5 inch Drive for OS.
    Onboard NIC
    Nvidia 8500 GT
    Sony Bravia W-Series 46"
    Onboard SPDif Out to Surround Sound Amp
    Logitech Universal Remote

    Frontend 2

    Gigabyte 7n400L (Or something like it)
    AMD Athlon 2800+
    768 mb RAM
    LG DVD Read/Writer
    Gigabyte 7600GS Video Card Component Out to CRT TV
    Onboard Soundcars SPDIF Fibre

    Frontend 3
    Dualboot Vista and Ubuntu (Testbox)
    Intel Q6600 Quad core
    4 GB Ram
    Asus P5K/EPU Motherboard
    8600gt Video card


    Apart from my LVM becoming corrupt due to (I think) a faulty PSU, all working, and improving with every update.

    Update: I ended up taking out the 8500gt as I didn't realise that the underscan/overscan feature was not available with the 8 series NVIDIA cards. I am outputting to a 32 inch WS CRT at the moment and the overscan makes it unwatchable. I am now running a second-hand 7600gt I swapped for the 8500gt with a mate. Not happy, but what can you do...? Getting a 42inch LCD sometime in the near future. That should cheer me up.
    Update 2: Now have my Sony Bravia 46". The 8500gt problem mentioned above is no longer an issue.
    Update 3: Since Mythtv 0.21 I have dumped the LVM and moved to storage directories. I now sleep much better instead of worrying about losing all my recordings to a faulty HD.
    Update 4 : Upgraded the processor on the backend from a X2 3800+ to a X2 4200+ because I had one lying around. Also upgraded from 1 gb ram to 2.5gb of ram on the backend as the backend was running out of memory under certain circumstances (not anymore).

    Backend:
    CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 6320
    RAM: 1 GB
    Video: Onboard Intel 965G
    Sound:Onboard Intel.
    Ethernet:Onboard Intel.
    HD: 250GB WD SATA
    Tuners: Hauppauge PVR-250
    Remote:Hauppauge remote
    OS: Ubuntu 7.04

    Performance: Great. Wish it had TV-out so I could use it as a front end as well.

    FrontEnd:
    CPU: VIA Samuel 2 600MHz
    RAM: 512 MB
    Video: Onboard VIA CLE266
    Sound:Onboard VIA
    Ethernet: 3c905
    HD: 2GB Flash
    Tuners: N/A
    Remote:Windows Media Center
    OS: Mythbuntu 7.10 Beta

    Performance:
    Had to tweak xorg.conf file to get correct DPI, work around OSD hack.
    Had to modify lircrc to get Back button working on remote.
    Playback stutters on complex scenes, even after enabling (VIA) XvMC.
    There is sometimes a very long (15 sec) delay in processing button presses on remote.
    Performace seemed better with iMedia MythTV (had to stop using it when my onboard ethernet died, as it didn't have any other NIC drivers)
