I have a new tuner card (HVR-3000) which is an upgrade from the simple HVR-150. I'm planning on installing using DVB-S input for Freeview (from sky dish) as well as the Sky into the analog input.

The card appears to be recognised as it shows up correctly in mythtv-setup and dmesg looks happy too. I upgraded my kernel specifically, as it is supposed to support this chipset.

I can't seem to get any signal from the analog

Has anyone got this working without patches in Linux?

The HVR3000 doesn't have an onboard MPEG2 encoder for the analogue inputs. This means you'll need to use a software based MPEG2 encoder to encode the analogue stream before it can then be decoded.

I have no idea if this can be done with Myth but presumably it can.

Julius - Might be worth joining us on the NZ MythTV Mailing list as a couple of posters have gotten that card working.

Generally known online as OpenMedia, now working for Red Hat APAC a Technology Evangelist and Product Manager. Still playing with MythTV and digital media on the side.
