View Full Version : [ubuntu] Is a dedicated graphics card required with Mythtv?

I'm looking to start a MythTV box in the future, and the motherboard I plan to use does not have video out capabilities. I'll have to get a graphics card for the initial setup, but am really hesitant to spend cash on a card that powers a box where I only connect via SSH.

I'll probably be recording HDTV over ATSC though, so would buying a fairly powerful card help out the encoding process? This is only a backend, I'll be using a different frontend computer.
