    Couldn't get the tuner working with .iso distro. I built/installed the latest drivers from linuxtv and got things working

    It's my primary front/back device and it basically worked out-of-the-box. I use high-quality VDPAU for playback and high-quality recording with real time commercial detection. The system has plenty of extra resources.

    The graphics card cooling fan was too loud so I unplugged it and it occasionally overheats. The channel changer is imperfect and it occasionally ends up on the wrong channel for a recording. Otherwise I'm very pleased.

    Updating my last hardware posts. Just upgraded my Master Backend/Frontend with a new Hex Core AMD processor. Also added a HDHR Prime and retired a old Slave SD Recording system.

    Records at least four channels simultaneously. Not got to grips with profiles yet for best playback. Don't like AMD video drivers. ALSA driver settings need some work.

    Sometimes after changing channel, reception (video and audio) is completely garbled and does not recover itself. Changing to another channel and back again immediately usually corrects the problem. I should probably start a thread for it.

    Blackdam-

    You don't list your tuner card or interface.
    How is the storage drive formatted?
    When you mount it you need to ensure you have read/write permissions
    both for your normal user and for mythtv.

    Terratec C1500 CI, a DVB-C tuner with CI slot daughtercard, "new" hardware revision, with coax plugs ("tulip" plugs).

    Works but does not support QAM256 properly. Might be possible to get to work by figuring out better sweeprate (etc.) values for the stv0297 tuner driver.


    Code:
    02:09.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7146 (rev 01)
    	Subsystem: Technotrend Systemtechnik GmbH Device 1010
    	Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 17
    	Memory at fdefe000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=512]
    	Kernel driver in use: budget_ci dvb
    	Kernel modules: budget-ci
    
    Class:     0x048000
    Vendor:    0x1131
    Device:    0x7146
    SubVendor: 0x13c2
    SubDevice: 0x1010

    This system worked great right from the start. The case is rather small, but I did not install an optical drive or dedicated video card so it's roomy enough. The system is extremely quiet.

    The only trouble I had was getting the analog audio to work. I'm sure it's doable; I just didn't spend the time. HDMI audio/video works perfectly. I use the OpenGL playback profile.

    VisionTek Products Candyboard Mini Keyboard with Touchpad - Wing Design (900508)
    This little thing straight rocks, just plain kicking the snot out of all other remote control solutions I've tried.
    • Rechargeable with mini-usb cable/charger
    • Backlit keys with auto-off
    • Backlight button easy to find in the dark (top-right corner)
    • Auto-off function for whole unit (not just backlight)...any keystroke wakes unit
    • Small, unobtrusive status lights
    • Full Keyboard with no missing keys: F1-F12, Fn, some media keys
    • Adequate RF range (at least 5meters with obstructions)
    • Tiny USB dongle
    • Zero config: kernel drivers support this as keyboard and mouse
    • Small form factor similar to typical candy bar remote controls
    • Switchable touchpad "sensitivity" changes how quickly it moves the pointer
    • Touchpad Scrolling function (like a mouse scroll wheel)
    • D-pad supports up/down/left/right and PageUp/PageDn/Home/End
    • Layout feels better than units with touchpad in lower right-hand corner

    Don't spend the money for a DiNovo mini or Sony RF mini-keyboard. This unit is "the one".
    Love. It.
