Really waiting for 0,19 release of MythTV

I've been bad again: I have not written in a while. The most important reason is that most things just work with the current setup. The remaining thing has been the ability to archive shows on DVD, with menues. The solution for cutting without synchronization problems seem to be based on the CLI version of the ProjectX application. So far, the solution has been based on a web-interface, with is fine for most applications. However, I must say that it has been slightly annoying having to fire up two computers to be able to make an archive.

It seems that some work has been done on this issue in the SVN for MythTV. Screenshots were released today on,

For the record, I will NOT start using the SVN version because of this, but I have to admit that I have been looking forward to this.

Try the IVTV 0.4 release!

It's been a while since I last blogged about the MythTV box. The reason for this is that it just works for most of the things I use it for. The one thing that I have found annoying in the past is that the DVD playback was a bit jerky. The reson for this was that I never got Xv support to work in the driver without visual artifacts.

Now I installed the latest stable release, 0.4.0, of the IVTV driver, and there is a HUGE difference. DVD playback is flawless and not at all jerky. If you read this and have a PVR-350 card, you should try this new driver and activate the Xv extension.
