    Mythbuntu 7.10 wont boot from live cd

    Wanted to try this out to see if it is better than vista mce/tivo, but when I boot from the live cd, using either the normal option or safe graphics mode, it just hangs on a black screen after the mythbuntu loading screen. When I move the mouse, I can see the cursor after moving it, there is a white line at the top of the screen.

    PC stats:
    Athlon 2800 thoroughbred
    ~1.75gb ram
    Nvidia 6800gt 256mb gfx card.
    Hauppauge PVR 150 tuner.
    Soundblaster Live! cheapo soundcard.

    Any help would be great!

    1) Did you md5sum the download?

    2) Did you burn the iso at 4x or less?

    3) Did you check the check the cd for errors?

    Actually, its working now and Ihave installed the full thing I guess. Trying it out now. Thanks for the fast reply.

    One question that hopefully someone can answer please.

    I live in an apartment complex that uses as the cable provider. I had their satellite service for a while but became uninterested in it due to sometimes poor service and whatnot, so I went back to the free, basic setup that is provided. Now, this service is using a unique guide line-up that I can't seem to get right in either Vista MCE or with Tivo (they are supposedly working on it to get it right but it has been several weeks now.)

    Is there a way to edit the guide in this, or any other htpc software, by entering the channels along with the station and get the guide information correct? Or is there only pre-set guides out there? As it is now, I cannot setup record times or anything which pretty much defeats a big purpose of an dvr...

    I personally don't know about changing the guide data around however I think it can be done. Does the company not use a transmitted guide?

    Anyway can I suggest you break the guide question out into a separate posting, as people who know about might not know about cd booting issues.
