I've already got a female to worry about. Her name is the Enterprise.

My MythTV systems root disk crashed so I need to reinstall it. I will keep my progress posted in this blog.

The Backend hardware:

  • IBM Desktop
  • PIII 800Mhz
  • 512 Mb memory
  • 120 Gb disk
  • Hauppauge PVR-350

The frontend hardware is an old Xbox, with XBMC.

I downloaded Mythbuntu and installed it on the MythTV backend system.

During boot my TV card was detected and the firmware was loaded, last time this took several nights to understand.


dmesg gives:
