I have a current system with 1 PVR-350 and 1 PVR-500 which is running mythbuntu 10.04.4 and 0.23.1+fixes. All is running perfectly. I have been considering moving to 12.04.1 and MythTV 0.26 but I want to be certain that it's not plagued with the zero byte recordings bug that I was reading about. Can anyone confirm all is well using the PVR-* analog cards with MythTV .26 and Mythbuntu 12.04.1? I saw that Mythbuntu 12.04.1 is based with MythTV .25.2, is there an option to get .26 using mythbuntu repos?
I would run a "test" with a live cd if I could but the system is an old Dell Dimension 8200 and only has 256 of RAM so it wouldn't pan out to well! I just noticed that Mythbuntu 12.04.1 requires 512 mb of ram and 2gb is suggested. What if the system is just going to be a headless server? No gui needed? Can I somehow use an Xubuntu alternate install disc, then add the mythbuntu repos and get my box equivalent to running Mythbuntu 12.04.1 with MythTV .26? I will just admin it over ssh or a tty session as I do now.
