Uptime 23 days, frontend/backend, pretty decent usage. I *have* had to
restart mythbackend a couple of times, both were caused when trying to
channel-flip in Live TV with my Matrox Marvel card as the tuner (That's
seems to be hinkey in live tv, but good for recording). Otherwise,
it's been good.
1) PVR-250 and Matrox Marvel G400-TV
2) Epox motherboard, Nforce2 chipset
3) Kernel 184.108.40.206 (from kernel.org)
4) IVTV 4.0ish from SVN right when 4.0 was released. Marvel driver
from CVS at Sourceforge, right after change to make it work with kernel
5) No idea on firmware. Whatever ATRPMs had.
6) 512MB RAM
So again, the Marvel is a bit flakey when trying to tune a channel, but
the PVR has been a rock. I need to figure a way to sync my hardware
clock to the system clock without rebooting :)
