Re: Cost

Because MythTV is considerably more than your average Cable company DVR. If all you want is the kind of DVR that they offer, then go and pay them your $5. It will save yourself the hassle of building a MythTV box and save us from you. I most heartily agree. When I built my own Myth box from scratch...

Re: Registration close? Will it open before 9/1?

Can anyone who got into the beta and is using mythTV give us a rundown on what to expect? What version is needed, how to upgrade, what problems you ran into, etc? I am currently subscribed and running MythTV 0.19. I did the following to make Schedules Direct work for me with my existing version. I ...

Re: Custom lineup still downloads all channels

Yup, this wasn't a problem and was completely a misunderstanding on my part as to how xmltv's "dd-data" option worked. I was running the grabber twice with different config files (same account info, different "lineup" option), thinking I was getting a different lineup each time but, in reality, was ...

Re: Custom lineup still downloads all channels

DD always sends all the data for all lineups. I could not find an option under board email or pm to send attachments, so I sent you my config and resulting data via email. It's possible I misunderstood the function of lineups in my account on the Schedules Direct server. I've attached screenshots o...

Custom lineup still downloads all channels

I'm not sure if this belongs in "Support" or "Lineup Issues", but I'm seeing interesting behavior on one of two "custom" lineups (channels deselected). A little background, my rural cable company made a lineup change roughly a year ago when WB switched to CW. They were carrying WB from out of state ...

Re: MythTV Howto?

I am on mythtv 0.19 (knoppmyth R5D1). I did a check and the series ID field in my database is varchar(12); my programid field is varchar(20). I'm trying to understand if I actually need to make any database changes, or if I can just use the latest xmltv software and my existing system without probl...

Re: Mythtv users - What to do/Steps ??

Maybe you would consider this: take your box down some night when nothing is scheduled. Remove the hard drive and replace it with a modestly sized (and priced) drive. Install KnoppMyth from a bootable CD. This is a fully automatic (if you choose) installation of a very recent version. If it works, ...

Re: Mythtv users - What to do/Steps ??

Not suggesting that you don't have a very good reason for using such an old version, but have you considered just upgrading to 0.20.2 and benefiting from the thousands of improvements, new features and fixes? I will say that, as someone who loves playing with Linux and coding on various projects, t...
