    CPU: AMD XP1500 (really...)
    RAM: 1Gb
    DVD Drive: Pioneer DVR-105 DVD-R Re-writer
    Video Card: Nvidia Geforce 2 MX/MX400 32Mb
    Sound Card: On Board AC97 thingy
    Motherboard Chipset: Errr...not too sure
    HDD: Hitachi 160Gb IDE
    Remote: Hauppage Grey one
    Tuners: Hauppage PVR-150


    Failed. When booting from the CD my floppy drive goes into meltdown and then the installer drops back to the command prompt. The command /sbin/modprobe failed apparently...

    It's supposed to be a combined front and backend and has worked successfully(ish) with Mythdora but I've always preferred Ubuntu.

    ASUS P1-AH2 Barebones kit
    CPU:AMD Athlon 64 4200+ X2
    RAM: 2GB Mushkin DDRII 800 Dual Channel Kit
    DVD Drive: LITE-ON LH-20A1L-05 20X DVD-RW SATA
    Video Card: Nvidia 6150 (onboard video)
    Sound Card: On Board Azalia ALC86-DTS
    Motherboard Chipset: whatever comes with the P1-AH2
    HDD: Western Digital 500GB SATA
    Remote: Kworld
    Tuners: Kworld 115
    Display: Panasonic AE-700 Front Projector

    This is my first MythTV install. I built the box and installed MythTV last night. The install was very smooth even though there don't appear to be instructions on how to install for Gutsy. I just used the Feisty instructions as a guide.

    I followed these instructions for the Kworld 115 card: LINK
    I set up 3 programs to record and went to bed. They were all there this morning when I got up. This setup is playing ATSC HD very well, over the air or recorded. I've yet to test the optical audio out, or remote.

    EDIT: The Kworld 115 doesn't provide audio on the NTSC SD Tuner. I've followed several guides and I'm still working on the issue. I may start a new thread requesting help on this issue. On the ATSC side of the tuner everything is working great, recording and playback with now issues. Also I ended up with one bad stick of ram so I'm running with 1GB until I get that replaced.

    CPU: Sempron 2800+
    M/B: Basic Gigabyte
    RAM: 512Mb RAM
    HDD: 200Gb PATA
    Sound: onboard
    Video: Leadtek FX 5700 128Mb - TV out (to TV )
    Tuner 1: Happauge Nova-T DVB-T (Phillips)
    Tuner 2&3: Dvico FusionHDTV Dual Digital 4 (new PCI version)
    Remote: MCE Remote original Microsoft
    Software: Mythbuntu 7.10 RC + Shepherd for Guide Data

    Nova-T worked out of the box - well you need to download firmware but was too easy.
    Dvico was a little more troublesome - although once the latest V4L was setup and firmware loaded - it just worked. Followed howto that everyone points to..
    CPU barely hits 40% with all three cards recording... (20% is frontend process) tempted to try another Dual Digital 4 to take it to 5 tuners... and seperate the frontend from the backend + add a couple of more frontends. Have tried the Live CD frontend and it worked seamlessly. Plan to offload post processing to my Vmware machine as commercial flagging alone can chew 40% CPU...

    Planned upgrade: another 1Gig of RAM + 500GB SATA drive + another dual tuner.

    Mythbuntu Rocks... cheers!

    Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon

    Re: Please post your Functional/Non Functional Hardware

    CPU: p4 3ghz
    RAM: 512mb
    Video Card: ATI x800xl, fglrx 42.3 (tv-out)
    Sound Card: onboard ac97
    HD: 320gb sata seagate, xfs
    Remote: Gyration media center remote
    Tuners: PCHDTV 5500
    OS: Feisty Kubuntu + mythtv backend and frontend, dist-upgraded to gutsy (still uses openbox)


    TV card worked right away after picking the right driver, and it actually shows up as 4 capture cards in "input connections" because it does both analog and digital using different drivers. Because the tv card doesn't have an onboard encoder, my cpu has to do it all. Using the kerneldeint and denoise3d playback filters and mpeg4 encoding and xvideo, watching an analog tv file while it is still recording is smooth now. Sound in recordings is pretty quiet, and I usually run the playback volume at max (external cord from capture card to onboard mic input, and I haven't messed with alsamixer). Digital SD plays back fine live. HD live playback does work when I turn off the deint and denoise filters. The remote was instantly recognized as a keyboard and mouse, but needed keymapping, and still has 4 buttons that aren't recognized at all (stuff like the dvd menu button). I needed to install fglrx to get TV-out working (did not try gatos). There's a small blank space at the bottom of my TV screen, probably due to video card driver issues.

    Just installed last night. Hardware config is as follows:

    Dell Dimension 4600
    CPU: Intell P4 2.4ghz
    Mobo: standard mobo for a dimension 4600
    RAM: 1GB PC2700 DDR333
    Video Card: Nvidia GeForce 6200
    Hard drives: 2x 320 GB (Haven't setup LVM yet but plan to thanks to the recent sticky)
    Optical: DVD-RW DL Memorex and DVD+RW NEC
    Tuner: pcHDTV HD-5500
    Remote: Snapstream Firefly

    All hardware installed without any problems. I had to use the lircrc and lircd.conf files from for the firefly. After that the remote worked fine.

    I also had to setup ndiswrapper for my netgear wireless card. That was no problem either.

    Mythbuntu is awesome.

    I just wanted to say how smooth the install went, everything went fine, including setting up grub, thanx to the advanced option during the bootloader setup, I read through your install manual and step by step everything went perfect, taking notes on the kernel and root entries for grub before rebooting I was able to add it to my existing grub and Mythbuntu booted up fine without making me chroot in to fix my existing grub, leaving my multiboot setup intact.

    Recording works great, love the commercial skipping, still need to figure out transferring stuff from an external ntfs removable hdd into the myth install as user, will search the forums.

    So far everything is performing fine, but I only watched a little TV so far. The entire install was pleasant, polished, professional. Thanx again

    HD: 2 Harddrives in LVM fashion about 450gb

    Tuner worked right out the gate.
    Had to install the nvidia legacy drivers for my card to work
    Used a different .lircrc file which worked much better

    Chassi: Antec Fusion V2?

    Installation worked perfect if you don´t use an old CRT television. Everything works besides... Remote is recognized sometimes and sometimes not. After install of xubuntu desktop videofiles can´t be played in xine, mplayer, vlc or totem. Audio OK but video just gives many shades of green colours. Same picture in all players. I have still not found a way to make my LCD/VFD on the chassi work. Old Feisty manuals don´t seems to work.
