Subject: [mythtv-users] Just trying to maximize my mythtv setup
I figure I am SOL, but I wanted to make sure....
I have the following MB, MSI K9N Platinum Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570
Ultra MCP ATX AMD Motherboard -- which has firewire built-in. I have a
pvr-500 and pchdtv5500 cards installed. My service is provided by
Comcast. I am paying for Digital cable with a HDTV box. Which has
channels from 1 - 200+.
my pvr-500 works great -- I have it getting basic cable 1 - 78.
pchdtv5500 -- I have scanned for channels using QAM-64 and QAM-256;
QAM-64 didn't have any channels and every channel on QAM-256 was
encrypted (the scan covered from 1 - 160?).
firewire -- At no time have I been able to get any show broadcast over
firewire, I can however change channels with no problems :} Trying
firewire by following the wiki's located here:
have only returned "failed" from both P2P and Broadcast.
1. Does anyone have any experience with the firewire ports off of my
-- I'm low on pci ports so I don't think I have a spot to add a
2. How do I scan for channels above the default (using QAM-256) as I
think my HD channels are up there...
3. Did I fail to try something that would help me out?
I'm not to optimistic, but it doesn't hurt to ask....
I know with my Dvico HD card and Comcast I had to make sure I was
scanning Cable HRC high
