    Re: Please post your Functional/Non Functional Hardware

    Hello forums! Here is my configuration and results ...

    Hardware

    Motherboard: Unsure, it's the 'default' one provided with the machine (Dell Poweredge SC430)
    CPU:
    P4 630, 3.0GHZ/2MB
    RAM: 1GB SINGLE RANK 533MHZ ECC MEMORY (2X512)
    Video Card: N/A
    Sound Card: N/A
    HD: 80GB SATA for OS and 1TB SATA for recordings
    Remote: N/A
    Tuners: TD500 (single tuner)
    Country: UK
    TV provider: FREEVIEW
    TV signal type: DVB-T
    Mythbuntu Version: 10.04

    Performance

    Works flawlessly as a back-end machine, my front-ends are windows XP SP3 with the MythTV player software (which is flawed but does a good enough job in all fairness).
    It's not just about "Why should I want Linux?". It's also about "Why should Linux want me?"

    TV signal type:
    Mythbuntu Version: 11.10 w/Ubuntu 11.10 desktop and 11.9 amd proprietary driver

    Performance

    Overall performance is good.
    Audio works out of the box.
    A few problems (familiar to AMD users): Cannot use OpenGL for menus or video playback without issues when switching between watching video, menus, and desktop. Disabling all desktop effects solves some problems.
    Tearing (minor) when using ffmpeg and xv-blit.
    Occasional "pink screen" when starting HD content.
    MythTV Frontend appears below top menu bar (compiz workaround does not solve). Switched to 2D desktop to solve problem.

    Sorry if I went overboard here but I thought I would share all the issues that I've found.

    Cheers.

    Compro E900F - no drivers-no linux function at all although hardware is tantalizingly close to the

    Hauppauge HR2200 which works after some serious driver install issues with Natty.

    Both the Compro USB U300 and the Divico PCI Fusion HDTV cards have inbuilt support from Ubuntu kernel, enabling them is the same a enabling Nvidia drivers from Mythbuntu Control Centre.


    Installed 11.10 Mythbuntu Ocelot no hitches on the new B/E. This surprised and delighted me as I changed everything, hardware platform AMD to an Intel based mobo and new O/S.
    It looks as though Mythbuntu is coming of age, a hearty well done to all who contributed to this O/S.
    Will attempt update on F/E to same, but am taking ghost of machine first. Will report back with results soon. I hope the HR2200 install will be easier with Ocelot.
    Anyone heard anything about Compro E900 Linux Drivers yet?

    Performance
    All working ok after a weekend of setting up. Firmware for HVR4000 had to be installed manually, used the details on linuxtv.org and installed v1.26.90.0 currently working on combing Freeview and Freesat channel lists and need to sort out a sound problem with the WebTV, i.e. BBC iPlayer and youtube.
    Looking forward to ditching SKY, just need to run some more feeds from my LNB so i can run a parrallel system, to test the wife out on its use!
    upgrade plans include obviously a bigger hard drive once i've proven it all works, with Xmas coming i'm thinking a SSD drive for the OS and a TB6981 card to give more Freesat streams.
    Remote needs reviewing, maybe i can persuade the wife an iPad is the way forward!

    Still configuring, however, this is my first box. If all goes well (so far, so good) I'll build a much bigger and faster secondary backend and this one will act as the primary backend.

    Works great, processor is a bit overkill (playback of HD only uses 30% of one processor), but makes commercial flagging (CPU intensive) much faster. __________________

    Tried installing 11.10 Ocelot on main Gigabyte Z68 machine but failed dismally. Unable to get the Hvr2200 to work at all.

    Reverted back to Natty 11.04 kernel 2.6.38-12-generic on ghosted image.
    Maybe the next incarnation in April will have proper support for the Hvr2200/2250 cards.

    If anyone has managed to get the Hvr2200/2250 to work can they please post a how-to?
