After having some issues with not being able to record anymore
(Changed the channel lineup, I think that's because I forgot to
redefine the source), I cleared the database, upgraded from 0.17 to
0.18 using apt-get (Thanks atrpms and Jarod's guide).
2005-05-06 22:35:54.415 mythfrontend version: 0.18.20050409-1 www.mythtv.org
My system is :
AMD Duron 1.6Ghz w/384 Mb
GeForce4 MX PCI
Slow 40 Gigs (Maxtor 6E040L0) with a little script that runs every
night to copy video to a unslung NSLU2 running NFS.
Example : /mnt/store/1005_20050503195900_20050503210000.nuv ->
I called the contrib "mythlink.sh" inside a tcl script (that's all I
know how to use).
I'm probably using the bare minimum but that works... I've been
recording with this 100$ PC from Fry's for a while, but I could never
playback correctly before 0.18.
I'm using NVIDIA Kernel Module 1.0-7174, XVMC output (yeah, seems to
work better now...) for 720p and 1080i with Bob deint. I've reduced
some of the OSD settings to low cpu.
720p content :

1080i content :

Cpu(s): 73.9% us, 12.5% sy, 0.0% ni, 6.3% id, 3.6% wa, 3.6% hi, 0.0% si
Cpu(s): 78.1% us, 12.6% sy, 0.0% ni, 3.0% id, 2.0% wa, 4.3% hi, 0.0% si

It doesn't work without issues. When the OSD appears, it stutters a
bit and comes back to normal after the OSD goes away. I'm not too
sure how to disable that completely, but I'll look a bit more.
I have 2 recordings (American Idol 04/26 and Desperate Housewives
(last one, wanted to see what this show is about) that I can't
forward/rewind. The OSD appears, the video just stops and the time
remaining increases... I can watch the whole recording without issues
if I don't jump/rewind the video.
I just wanted to share my success, now I need to get roku HD1000...
Someone started working on some MythTV client, it would be a lot nicer
than a PC beside my Samsung DLP. Thanks to all the developpers, it's
getting better (for me anyway).
