Now I have 2 HTPC's that I would like to turn into just one working HTPC that can play media, watch Freeview terrestrial, and watch SKY satellite from my decoder.
So, Im trying to setup MythTV on one of my htpc's. I used Mythbuntu to install it and that seemed to be fairly straightforward, and the GUI looks really nice. But I'm having no luck getting the tuner card to work.
My htpc is:
Intel E8500 Dual Core
160GB HDD and a 1000GB HDD
For Freeview I'm using a Hauupauge nova t500, and I followed the guide on this page to try get it working:
It still shows up as: failed to probe, in the capture cards menu.
For the sky I was hoping I can just take the output from the decoder and input to a tuner card, but if thats the case or not im unsure, as I havent got that to work yet either.
Have been trying with a HVR-1300, and I also have a HVR-2200 lying around if thats any better.
I notice on here that there seems to be a lot of people using mediaportal, but if there are any mythtv users that could give me a hand that would be great.
