This might be a stupid question, but has anyone actually managed to get Freeview running under linux?

I've done some searching and been to the mythtv pages but no-one has actually said whether they have got it working or not.

I'm trying to get it running, but I would like to know whether it is possile before I go any further.

I'm assuming you mean the MythTV pages at

Best bet is to come on over to the NZ MythTV mailing list - see link above for details. Basically only kinda working.

1. Interlaced channels don't work

2. HE-AAC audio isssues

3. CPU performance required for 1080i playback


Generally known online as OpenMedia, now working for Red Hat New Zealand as a Solution Architect for all things Linux, Virtual and of course Cloud. Still playing with MythTV and digital media on the side.
