What is Freebox recorder ?
Freebox is the name of the "box" used by the french ISP free.fr. This box provides internet access, a telephone line (VoIP) and television.
Since december 2005, the TV channels are available via rtsp: protocol (MPEG2-TS), allowing free.fr's customers to receive the channels on their computer (using VLC). The Freebox recorder was added in MythTV-0.20. It allows MythTV to record/watch the rtsp: channels.
How to use the recorder ?
Simple case, with the Freebox modem
1. Create a new FreeboxRecorder capture card using mythtv-setup. 2. Keep the default mrl (http://mafreebox.freebox.fr/freeboxtv/playlist.m3u) 3. Link your new capture card to an input video source (see http://www.mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO-9.html for details) 4. If you have enough bandwidth, multiple "capture cards" may be added
Complex case, without the Freebox modem
