    Re: Hauppauge HVR-2250 With Mythbuntu

    Hi all,

    I'd like to insert a NOOB question here.

    I am building a MythTV front/back end box now and I play to use the 2250.

    Here is my question. In addition to getting OTA signals, can I pipe the output from a DirecTV HD receiver into this card?

    thanks !

    To expand on my post a bit.

    To get OTA (digital obviously) AND HD DirecTV into Mythbuntu, do I need both the HVR-2250 AND the Hauppage HD-PVR ?

    The HVR-2250 only has one input for TV signals, so no it will not work with two different signals. So yes you will need another card to do what you are looking to do.

    hope that helps.

    Well, I have since determined that the HD PVR is a "must have" for recording HD content from a DirecTV receiver. So, I am going to order one of those.

    So, let me change the question a bit. What is the hot setup for just an OTA card?

    thanks again,
    Dave

    HVR-2250 ius a great card, it has basically 4 built in tuners, with the ability to record two shows at the same time., its only downside is it having one input so you cannot use two different sources. but the qualtiy is great, it has onboard encoding to save processor speed. So for OTA the card is worth it., just get a good antenna, as digital signals in some areas can be weak.

    vronp, I'm not very familiar with this (seen it, never done it). But I know it is possible to combine cable inputs into one line if you have the correct coaxial combiner. I did some research last year when setting up my outdoor OTA antenna. Depending on your setup, a simple coax combiner may be able to work. They also make channel restrictive combiners. I don't have any idea if the 2250 can handle it though, since that may mean OTA digital and possibly cable analog.

    Just dropping in a note to confirm that this card works as expected for me as well. The hardest part was finding the mplex for some channels and then having to manually enter them into the db.

    I'm getting:

    "abort: error: Connection timed out"

    when trying to connect to http://kernellabs.com

    Is this site still active, or maybe just temporarily down?

    Thanks

    FWIW - I have been on the http://kernellabs.com site today

    ok so I had it all working in mythbuntu 8.10. Then I upgraded to 9.04 and the 2250 drivers are no longer listed in Hardware drivers and if I try and go through the steps again it errors out like the drivers are already installed. I am fairly new to linux so kid gloves are appreciated.
