I have an older version of MythTV that would not use my PVR-150. Can someone
tell me what version of MythTV added support for the ivtv chip set as used
in the Hauppauge PVR-150?
I yanked out my PVR-150 out and moved it to a different system just to
record shows and put an saa7134 in my MythTV so now I can watch any channel
I want and let my other system record shows. This works but I realy must
aggree with you Todd the picture and sound quality of the ivtv is much
better then the saa7134. That and the PVR-150 has a much nicer remote make
me want to buy another and some how get MythTV to use it.
I need to know what version of MythTV started supporting ivtv chip sets
because I want to dump the unstable Ubuntu and switch back to the reliable
KnoppMyth. KnoppMyth is a few versions behind the newest MythTV release.
