google mythtv, it runs on linux there are a bunch of pages of people who have done this. I'm gonna do it when I can scratch up enough for a shuttle pc and a nice video card.

Yes.

I tried KnoppMyth (a bundled version of MythTv and Knoppix designed specifically for a PVR) once but had some issues with my tuner card. About a month ago, I installed Ubuntu Dapper Drake and installed MythTv through apt-get.

After a bit of tweaking, it worked perfect.

It isn't terribly difficult, but it can take some time. I suggest following an install guide for a specific flavor of linux.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
