I have been messing with Myth since its conception. Basically, I show up, realize how much of a pain it is to get to work right, cry that i don't have a Hauppauge, then realize transcode isn't working at all even though its supposed to be uber.
Well I broke down and finally bought a 150, and was really happy with mythbuntu. Myth has come a long way and mythbuntu makes it a no brainer.
Tonight I recorded my first show. 2.2 gig for 1 hour. Everything rolled off perfectly, so I decided to just hit X and see what the defaults for transcode return. Mythweb said the transcode job failed with status code "247".
This is where things for me always make me want to give up on myth. I have managed to get it too record in the past with my crappy tuner card, but could never get transcode to produce what I want. I am not a dumb guy. I would like to think I have figured out things far more complex than this, but as soon I as I start looking at the profiles for record/transcoding, I can't figure out which does what. (why in the world are record and transcoding profiles kept in the same place )
I want my box to record my shows, flag (edit out if possible) the commercials, and transcode the television show down to a reasonable size, preferably using MPEG 4. I am using the defaults on everything, its a fresh install, what do I need to do?
My tuner is a Hauppauge 150.
