I know absolutely nothing about Linux except it evolved from Unix which I knew existed in a mainframe at tech when I was younger.
I would like to install ubantu 9.10 (dual boot), run MythTV which I've read about is quite customizable, with an oldish Hauppauge WinTV RVR-500MCE to record analog TV
1. Is this do-able? Has anyone done this.
2. What format would MythTV save the TV as? Currently my XP-MCE records as *.dvr-ms which only works with windows media player, Air video Server (iphone app) and PQ DVD-iPhone video converter.
