I finally started building a MythTV PVR. It’s something I’ve talked about and considered doing for
a long time, but this weekend I finally went down to CompUSA and bought a ATI Radeon 7000 (for TV out)
and a Hauppauge PVR 150 MCE video capture card.
I threw the cards into an old spare PC (AMD Duron 800) and loaded KnoppMyth on it. KnoppMyth loads easily, but if
everything *doesn’t* work right out of the box, you *will* need a high level of comfort with Linux to
fix it. Not a problem for me, but I’d be nice to see future versions of either MythTV or KnoppMyth
provide some GUI tools for setup and troublshooting. Setting up a MythTV box is definitely *not* the
right project to convert your Windows using friends to Linux!
