Configuring with MythTV
I adjusted the description to point users to Schedules Direct since zap2it is now obsolete. However this section still needs a lot more cleanup to walk through the process correctly, and get the Schedules Direct listings to map to the ATSC channel numbers. I'm still fine-tuning this process myself and don't yet feel 100% comfortable in giving much advice on this. - Viridari 15:55, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
What's the date on those .20 RPM fixes?
I think it's great that there's a section telling us how obsolete the instructions are and that they should be taken with a grain of salt. But how obsolete are those RPM patches? And what of those of us not running an RPM based distro? I'm running gentoo ebuilds that had hdhr changes made to them back in February. Are these the same changes as made via the RPMs? If an average Joe knew rougly what the RPMs were being applied against and the dates, he'd be able to make some assumptions about what he should have on his own system. --DirkGecko 18:38, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
New DVB-T version
A new version of the HDHomeRun which captures DVB-T is due Q1 2008 (see SiliconDust's website). Will this work straight away with the current integration or will some tweaks be required? I'm hoping the former if, in theory, the output is just the same video stream. --DanGravell 12:29, 6 February 2008 (UTC)
The DVB-T version has been out since Feb 2009. Does mythtv currently (0.21) support this. If not what is the timeline for this device to be supported. I own a DVB-T HDHomeRun, so I may be able to supply some info as to the usage should developers require it. --Blebo 12:45, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
It would be useful to add a couple of things:
(1) Output format. e.g. vis a vis homework / many usb atsc which puts out raw feed, so 8GB/hr, or mp4/h.264 as do some usb atsc. i.e. If 8GB/hr, if equivalent mp4/h.264 hardware is out there, perhaps a better choice.
(2) Closed captioning. I understand from their web pages that the hdhomerun passes through the incoming feed unchanged - i.e. doesn't touch closed captioning. It would be worth noting that, and if there are any special mythtv settings to make surrounding the stream.
