I'm sorry if this question is answered somewhere else. I searched with
all the terms I could think of to no avail.
Since upgrading to Ubuntu's version 0.21.20080304-1, the recordings are
less the desirable. I'm not sure how to describe it. I would say it's
"jumpy," among other things. The best way to describe it would be to
show an example. This file is 2.5MB.
The file is an Ogg (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ogg). Video is 1024
kb/s Theora (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theora) and audio is 192 kb/s
Vorbis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vorbis). The capture cards writes
to mpeg files. When grabbing a few seconds sample I just happen to
write it to an ogg.
There are a number of error messages from the frontend I'm still trying
to figure out. If someone thinks that they might tell us something,
I'll post them as well.
The tuner is a PVR-500 (http://mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hauppauge_PVR-500).
Also have a WinTV-Go
(http://mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hauppauge_WinTV-Go), which I have not
been able to spend much time setting up and it is currently disabled in
Myth. I could not get the sound to work and I believe I had the
snd-bt87x driver set up correctly.
I am not sure what information you would like to know. Just let me know
and I'll get it.
Thanks for your help guys.
