Hi, I'm Daniel Ellis from Kent in the UK.

My MythTV system consists of the following hardware:-

  • Antec Fusion Remote Veris Black
  • Antec 380W EarthWatts Green PSU
  • Gigabyte GA-MA78LMT-US2H Motherboard (Hardware rev 3.5, BIOS version F9)
  • AMD Phenom II X4 840 Socket AM3 3.2GHz CPU
  • Corsair 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz XMS3 Memory
  • Western Digital WD20EARS 2TB Hard Drive SATAII 64MB Cache
  • Asus GT 430 1GB DDR3 DVI VGA HDMI Out PCI-E Graphics Card
  • LiteOn iHOS104 4x BD-ROM SATA Blu-Ray Drive
  • Xenta Wireless Keyboard
  • KWorld PC1602T Dual DVB Tuner

And software:-

  • Ubuntu 11.10
  • MythTV 0.25

Favourite theme is Blue Abstract

What works without issues

  • Watching TV
  • Scheduling recordings
  • Watching recordings
  • MythVideo

Current Issues

  • Video parental controls in are broken in 0.25, see bug #10388
  • Ubuntu 11.04 and 11.10 sometimes hang when shutting down, leaving the machine on after recordings. See https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/lirc/+bug/824369 This is due to lirc freezing, for now I have resolved this issue by removing lirc from the shutdown process, which has zero negative affects and fixes the issue. The underlying issue is still to be determined.
  • After shutdown the Veris remote fails to power on the machine. (this seems to be related to the above issue, as my workaround for that appears to have fixed this!)
  • The TV tuner (KWorld PC1602T) does not work after a system reboot. It only works after a power cycle. I have not tried the card resuming from suspend yet.
  • MythMusic does not work from remote frontends. It only works from a local filesystem or using NFS shares. Someone needs to update MythMusic to use the new streaming framework that MythTV uses.
  • I haven't managed to find a way to play blu-rays yet (I get the impression it may not be possible at this time, maybe purchasing the blu-ray drive was a bit of a waste)

Nice to haves

Old issues

(This list of issues is kept to assist others searching for the same issues)

  • LCD backlight remains on after shutdown.

Thread discussing the backlight issue
Video comparing Windows shutting down and Ubuntu 11.04

This issue is fixed on Ubuntu 11.10, I don't know what changed, or even what was causing the issue!
