    Xrcam setup.

    Four machines. One linux backend server, one linux frontend server and two windows frontend.

    Backend server:
    Mobo : Asus M2N-MX SE PLUS
    CPU : Amd Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5000+
    RAM : 2 GB
    Video Card : GeForce 6150E nforce 430 (on mobo)
    Sound Card : Nvidia corporation MCP61 High Definition Audio (Rev 22) (on mobo)
    Remote: None
    HD : Western Digital 2TB – WDC WD20EAR5-00
    Tuners : Hauppauge HD-PVR 1212
    TV Box : Scientific Atlanta 4250HD
    TV Provider : Videotron
    Country: Canada

    OS: Mythbuntu 10.10
    MythRelease: 0.24
    FireWire Channel Changer: /usr/bin/mythchanger

    Frontend 1:
    Mobo : Shuttle XS35gt
    CPU : Intel Atom 510 Dual core (Pineview-D)
    RAM : 2 GB DDR2
    Video Card : Nvidia Ion 512MB DDR3, HDMI
    Sound Card : Nvidia Ion
    Remote control : Wireless Rii Mini PC Keyboard

    OS: Mythbuntu 10.10
    MythRelease: 0.24

    Frontend 2 and 3:
    Windows PC – Kids room (using Myth 0.24 compiled for Windows)

    So far everything works as expected. Got 4 problems :
    1- No sound thru HDMI with Frontend 1. Fixed : Alsa-conf files and MythFrontEnd audio settings.
    2- Streamzap (lirc) does not work with (10.10). Replaced Streamzap by Rii Mini PC Keyboard
    3- Did not succeeded using IR Blaster as a channel changer for the TV Box. I hooked my backend to the SA4250HD with a FireWire Link and used (Mythchanger) program instead.
    4- This is unsolved: Cannot use High Def VDPAU on the master frontend. This setup cause display lag on the TV. Ended using VDPAU Standard definition.

    Thanks folks for this great package !

    Used LowSky's tutorial ( to get HVR-2250 running. I used 10:10 HVR2250 driver and audio.
    Still encountering "Video Buffer Errors" but suspect this is a antenna reception problem. I'll post if it's something different.

    Works great, no problems with with any of above hardware.

    Note: Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-T1300 fails to tune or lock stations, tried backported V4L-DVB with fix at:
    which solves tuning/lock problem but interferes with IR remote, so will wait for fix in kernel before deciding to replace DTV1000s with it.

    Thanks for great package

    Motherboard: Acer Aspire Revo R3700 Desktop
    CPU: Intel Atom D525 1.8GHz
    RAM: 2Gb
    Video Card: NVIDIA ION 2
    Sound Card: onboard
    HD: 160Gb SATA
    Remote: Windows Media Center
    Tuners: WinTV Nova-TD Diversity USB
    Country: UK
    TV provider: Freeview
    TV signal type: DVB-T
    Mythbuntu Version: 10.10

    All hardware detected and functional except driver for wireless adapter which causes a hang on shutdown / restart.

    Fix for wireless driver
    Credit to Dan Wood from the comments page on
    Open a terminal and type:
    sudo pico /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

    Now add this to the bottom of the file:
    blacklist rt2800pci
    Save the file (Ctrl+o)

    Now reboot (you'll still need to hold power button in this time!).

    You should now find your system restarts with a different wifi driver that behaves better on shutdown.

    There was slight tearing when viewing video so I disabled compositing
    edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf and add the following to the bottom

    Section "Extensions"
      Option "Composite" "Disabled"
    Then reboot

    Fantastic little machine. Cheap, silent, plays high bitrate 1080p h264 video through VDPAU with ease. Highly recommend this little box as a myth frontend / backend.

    In an effort to produce accurate documentation of what people will need hardware wise for setting up a box, we'd like if you can post what hardware you've got (particularly tuners) and how things work with it.
    Motherboard: Dell 400sc
    CPU: Pentium 4 2.8GHz Hyperthreaded

    RAM: 2.5GB
    Video Card: nVidia GeForce FX 5200
    Sound Card: SoundBlaster Live! 5.1 Platinum
    HD: Samscum SpinPoint 500GB x2 in LVM and RAID 1 config
    Remote: mceusb IR6
    Tuners: Hauppauge HVR-1600 (x2), pcHDTV HD5500
    Country: 'tis of thee
    TV provider: Suddenstink Cable
    TV signal type: QAM 256
    Mythbuntu Version: 10.10
    MythTV Version: .24-fixes

    The SoundBlaster Live does not work with the .24-fixes branch. I (and at least one other user) get constant ALSA buffer underruns and jumpy video. I can make it work with the on-board audio (Intel ICH5) as long as I settle for 2-channel analog sound output.
    XvMC would be nice with the 5200 video but the package maintainers have dropped support for it in the nightly builds. Xv and openGL scaling work but with a little extra CPU utilization (mythfrontend.real uses about 17% CPU while playing SD video)
