    MythTV on ubuntu SE?

    Hey guys.

    I'm running ubuntu hardy SE on a very old computer. Is it possible to run MythTV with out the GUI? Straight from commandline?
    If so, is there a good tutorial you guys can point me to?

    Thanks!

    I do not believe that is possible. I have used Mythtv for a couple of years now, and never seen a way to configure it strictly from a command line. It has to be done via the graphical mythtv-setup interface.

    Okay thanks. That's what I figured.

    Can you explain MythTV more in-depth for me? I know what it is, but I want to know more about it.

    Oops. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Basically mythtv is a linux PVR (personal video recorder) system. I use it mainly to record tv shows for me and my family, and watch them at a later time. Its nice to be able to skip the commercials. My wife has a favorite soap that I burn to DVD+RW for her. It has other plugins and features, such as playing music files, but I rarely use those. The web interface comes in handy for scheduling shows and changing the priority of what needs to be recorded. I use a pci capture card which gets fed by our cable. Now I just with I had a cared with more than one 1 tuner, so that I can record more than one show at the same time.
