After spending a few days trying to make my Asus P4P800S (Intel 848P
chipset) work with my PVR-350 I give up. The tuner just won't work. I'm
sure someone more skilled than I would be able to make it happen but ...
Anyway, I installed a XP in that box just to make sure the hardware
wasn't the problem. I wouldn't work either until I installed the
motherboard chipset drivers - everything started to work. Since I don't
know how to do the same thing in Linux, I have decided to replace the
mobo with one that is more tested.
So the question is simple: If you were to buy a motherboard for mythtv
(only use) to use with these cards:
I've searched the database but most people is using Shuttle's which are
no good for me since I need plenty of PCI lots (plus I already have a
nice HTPC case).
Athlon or P4 is no problem.
I'm sorry my frustration is evident in this email.
