I've been thinking more and more about converting my PVR over to Myth.
I'm currently using Win2k with BTV and Meedio and using a Firefly
remote. Reliability has become an issue, as well as some usability. I
would feel much more comfortable with a PVR running Linux.
So I'm thinking about pulling my pvr box out of its cabinet and
installing KnoppMyth tonight. I wanted to ask the list if I might be
setting my self up for a fight. I have the following hard ware
40GB OS HD
160GB + 120GB for storage
gForce 5200FX 128MB
Firefly USB remote (x10 based)
56" HDTV (1080i supported)
So my questions are:
I've never messed with LVM. Has there been many problems with using LVM
on KnoppMyth before?
Will using 1920x1080 with a DVI cable be a problem?
And I have a pretty high WAF .... how has other's WAF been effected by
using Myth, specifically if you are coming from a Windows-based PVR?
